Gorgeous depth and complexity, especially after 2 hours decanting -- let this baby breathe! Aromas of black cherry, tar and brooding attitude. Pair with prime rib or the Fight Club.

Reviews and Ratings

Paul Cebo rated this wine as 94/100
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lots going on right from the nose, which features black plums, raisins, black mushrooms, white pepper, earth, smoke, vanilla, leather, meaty notes and a savoury undertone.

On the palate, off-dry but held nicely with acid and alcohol. All those stewed black fruits and raisins are front and centre as you'd expect, with a savoury finish that goes on for a long time.

Beautifully balanced, while drinking well now, this will definitely age further.

Tasted October 2016.
Natalie MacLean rated this wine as 83/100

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
