Deep in color, the wine is soft, round, forward and fruity. The red fruits and spice are surrounded by toasty oak on the nose and palate. There is a nice sweetness to the fruit and lift in the finish. Give it a few years before pulling a cork. 89-91 Pts

Showing a lot of oak at the moment, though, once past the vanilla, espresso and chocolate, you find a lot of sweet, ripe, fleshy, round, sweet fruits. Give it a few years and hope that the oak integrates better. Drink from 2022-2032.

Forward with a strong jolt of espresso, licorice and smoke, on top of the ripe dark red fruits, the wine is round, fleshy and should provide pleasure early with its modern approach. 87-89 Pts

With early approachability, the deep-colored wine shows some agreeable sweetness and a little flesh. There are soft tannins and a licorice, espresso, red fruity finish.

Sweet, round and voluptuous, this early drinking wine is already serving up its pleasures with its supple textures, licorice, espresso and chocolate covered cherries. This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot is a little expensive for what it delivers, but it's a fun wine to drink today.

Licorice, coffee, blackberry, earth, and smoke aromas open to a soft, round, crowd pleasing style of Bordeaux wine that is already showing well. I'd drink this on the young side to enjoy its fruit forward flavors.
