    Fleshy, with lots of intense blackberry, plum and boysenberry notes blended together and wound with licorice strips and singed alder wood. Solid grip through the finish has a slightly chewy feel now, but should soften soon enough. Best from 2015 through 2025. 3,333 cases made. –JM - Wine Spectator Magazine 92 Points

    This wine has turned out well and is one of the strongest efforts from this estate in many a year. Three-fourths Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc, the wine offers up oodles of sweet black raspberry, camphor and black currant along with some forest floor and roasted herbs. Super-fruity, opaque ruby/purple, medium to full-bodied, hedonistic and lush, it should drink nicely for at least 10-12+ years. - Robert Parker 90 Points

    Bright, medium-deep ruby. Musky aromas of plum, blackcurrant and tobacco leaf. Juicy, sappy and rather stylish, combining peppery herb nuances with sweet chocolatey black fruit. Neither hugely concentrated nor particularly complex, but silky and insidious long, finishing with suave tannins. Hubert de Bo u ard consults here. - Ian D'Agata - Vinous 87-90 Points
