Jennifer scored this wine: 94/100
This is a robust and powerful wine with a cult following. Primarily Carmenere (92%) and Petit Vedot (8%), this wine lives up to its reputation with robust and rounded blackberry, plum, and black currant, with some slight herbal notes, as well as hints of mocha and smoke. Full bodied, smooth and powerful, with smooth tannins, rich, ripe fruit on the palalte, and an herbaceous, smoky finish, with more of that mocha hint carrying through. Enjoy with a grilled steak.
