|Douglas Russell rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
A great fruit forward wine. This Bordeaux style wine shows lucious red fruit with a hint of green pepper due to the Cab Franc. The Merlot rounds the finish to make this a very approachable and well priced wine.
|Very deep ruby in appearance. The nose offers up suggestions of red and black currants with red and black cherry, all accented by vanilla and cocoa notes. So smooth in the mouth! The lovely mouthfeel is further enhanced by structured tannins. Ripe, approachable and very well put together. This is one to be excited about. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, March 2013|
