Medium bodied, soft, round, forward, earthy charmer with the character of ripe, red fruits, tobacco, espresso and currants in the finish. This is not for long-term aging. So give it a few years and enjoy it over the next 10-12 years or perhaps longer. The wine is made from a blend of 50% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. 89-91 Pts

A well-priced, easy drinking, soft textured, medium-bodied wine that is already showing its earthy, bright fruit and tobacco charms. This is not for aging, it is, however perfect for near term consumption.

Full bodied, fresh and filled with ripe, juicy, dark berries, cedar, tobacco leaf and earth, the wine makes its presence known. This is not an elegant wine, instead you get a blast of deep red chewy fruits, cedar, spice and tobacco leaf . 3-5 years in the cellar with add a lot here.

Fresh with flesh, the fruit is on the bright side and I really like the earthy, spicy accents. This is a nicely priced wine that will drink well early.

Medium bodied, with juicy, sweet ripe fruits, soft, polished tannins and an oaky presence in the finish, this should be better if the oak merges a bit better into the wine.
