“A delicious red with dark chocolate and fresh herb character plus plum hints. Medium to full body, round tannins and a fruity finish.”

— James Suckling, December 1, 2013

Wine Spectator

An assertive herbal note announces this balanced red, layered with subtle black currant, iron and ground spice flavors that gain momentum on the supple, refined finish. Carignano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2019. 12,500 cases made.

International Wine Cellar

“Red-ruby. Exotic, liqueur-like aromas of red cherry, licorice and five-spice powder. Offers noteworthy volume on entry, then a fresh laser beam of precise red fruits and spices hits the tongue.”

— Ian D’Agata, April 1, 2014
