93Pts JS "Attractive dark berries and earthy nuances here. Some iodine and leafy aromas, too. The palate has a smoothly rendered, plush feel to it. The long fresh flavors of red berriesreally impress"
90Pts WE "Aripe, balanced wine, this is full of generous fruit, rich tannins and blackberry flavors. Acidity comes through this concentrated wine to give a crisp edge. This wine, with a blend dominated by 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, will age well. SR $30" ❣️
