About the Wine
92 points, Wine Spectator
“This medium- to full-bodied red presents a pure beam of dark, ripe black currant fruit underscored by a streak of spicy minerals. Offers accents of vanilla bean, rose hip and orange peel, which add to this version’s expressive character. Tightly coiled and wellknit at first, this is a concentrated wine that opens nicely in the glass. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Petit Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2029. “
