Natalie's Score: 98/100

This is a towering wine that still needs cellar time. Very tight and tannic, but it will open up into a blockbuster, especially given the spectacular 2005 vintage. Only 10,000 cases were produce of this traditional blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot. In the past, the winery produced about 20,000 cases of this wine. It offers classic aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, cassis, licorice and graphite. All the elements are here of a benchmark wine from Bordeaux.

Gorgeous Gift Wine
