#54 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
An elegant, balanced Cabernet with flavors of black cherry, plum, and black tea, and hints of nutmeg, allspice, cassis, vanilla, and anise. The broad mid-palate is rich, the finish is long, and the tannins are lush.
"Graceful and elegant, featuring lively red and dark berry flavors, with touches of black licorice and mocha-laced espresso, showing focus on the long, tapered finish."
"Ripe, toasty, blackcurrant nose, with fine purity of fruit. Full-bodied, balanced palate of creamy new oak, bold fruit and high acidity. This has lift and drive and should evolve very well.
