Natalie's Score: 93/100

Juicy-wonderful! Just dripping with fleshy berry flavor and plums with some real vibrancy and lift on the mid-palate. I love it! This wine is a blend of about a third cabernet sauvignon, a third syrah, and the balance split between merlot and carmenere grapes. Superb craftsmanship; great value. Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah Merlot Carmenere food pairings: brisket, beef ribs, pork chops, braised meats, winter stews. Plush Pork Wine

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Big bold fruits and great structure, this full bodied wine has a nice subtle toasted oak feel as well. Nice acidity and elegant tannins, the fruit is what stood out to me. I could tell the Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant grape in the blend, and since I'm a big fan of a Cab Sauv I enjoyed this wine. This is a great wine for beef.
The Blend indeed. This includes Carmenère, Syrah, Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Complex notions of dark cherry, autumn leaves and earth make way for a seductively smooth and velvety wine brimming with dark fruit and a drop of vanilla, culminating in a spicy tobacco and black pepper finish.
