93 points, Gold MedalBlack violet color. Jammy aromas of blueberry oatmeal bar, chocolate covered cherries, and peony with a round, crisp, fruity full body and a warming, nuanced, long leather, mulberry, salted caramel, and earth finish with earthy, well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. A delicious, intriguing cabernet with shining fruit and earthy accents.

91 points, Highly RecommendedThis is a wine full of toasty cedar, fresh black currant, and green mint aromatics. The palate combines these flavors with a touch of dark chocolate and ground coffee bean. Soft tannins give the wine a dry finish.

91 points, Gold MedalViolet black color. Aromas of chocolate wafer bar, powdered berries and limes, and butter roasted nuts with a satiny, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a dried blueberry, roasted citrus, and cocoa accented finish with ultra fine tannins. A delightful sipper or table wine.
