Professional Reviews

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"Meaty black fruit, fresh herb and smoky oak on the nose. Full-bodied and tight, with firm tannins and a long, minerally finish. Big and chewy. A sledgehammer of a wine, but I like it a lot. Best after 2006. 750 cases made."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"Is this a bruiser or what? Opaque in color, with monster aromatics that run from tar and espresso to maple, violets, cumin and finely scented candle wax. Deep and intense as they come, with charcoal and menthol notes on top of primary blackberry and cassis. No other word besides "massive" describes it. Hugely tannic and weighing in at 17%; needs five to seven years minimum in the cellar."
