Critical Acclaim

"This big, fully ripened, highly extracted offering runs true to the winery's preference for very rich wines, but for all of its size and flamboyant oak, it strikes an uncommonly fine sense of balance and stays in control from beginning to end. Its involving flavors of ripe apples, caramel, toast and cream are as bright and alive as they are deep and impressively stuffed, and its exceptionally long finish exhibits a spark of unexpected brightness that is the mark of a wine that is destined to hold up brilliantly for a good many years.
