|Matt Steeves Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc. Deep dark ruby red, nose showing a wide array of fruit including small field strawberries, stewed red fruit, vanilla, pencil shavings, and roasted beets. Full bodied with delicious dark fruit, roasted beets, and soft well integrated tannins. Another exceptionally well balanced wine that would pair wonderfully with BBQ steak with Roquefort cheese.
Tasted January 2014. 91 pts. Matt Steeves
|Heather Wall Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
70%Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc. 80% of this wine is aged 1yr in new French Oak. Dark ruby and powerful. Dark red fruits, plums, black raspberries, graphite, vanilla, oak and mint.
Tannic with cellar potential of 10yrs. Full-bodied.
Winemaker suggested this wine is a great pairing with Roquefort or salted meat. I'm thinking Brazilian style BBQ! Decant 1 hour. Room temperature.
