Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, it transcends the vintage boasting a black/purple color along with sweet black raspberry and blueberry fruit notes intermixed with spring flowers, incense, new oak and lavender. Rich and intensely concentrated, this beauty should drink well for a decade or more.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"Blueberry, blackberry and minerals. Full body, with a wonderful density of fruit. Pretty length too. Impressive for the vintage. Better than 2011. 92-93 Points"
93 Points

"Glass-staining inky purple. Strong, sexy oak notes complement cassis, cocoa and coffee on the nose. Sweet, pliant and smooth, boasting good depth to the blackcurrant, tobacco and coffee flavors. The broad finish shows fine, building tannins and mellow lingering notes of oak-derived coffee and cocoa. Offers above-average concentration and depth for the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 88-90 Points"
