The wine’s complex lavors of black currants, clove and mocha are topped of by licorice. Its full-bodied, rich mouthfeel carries these lavors for a long, lingering inish that loves seared steak, Gorgonzola gnocchi, beef bourguignon and ratatouille.
92 Points Tasting Panel - Rich plum and cassis with smooth texture and balanced flavors; clean, juicy and long. 12% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc.
91 Points Decanter - Blackcurrant and menthol aromas unfold onto generous rhubarb, charcoal and vanilla oak on the palate. It is sleek and supple with full fruit, but it is a little oaky now and needs time to integrate.
