93pts - James Suckling
"Currant, blackberry and stone aromas follow through to a full body with firm, balanced tannins that are rather chewy now, but will soften in a year or two. Serious bottle of cab! Drink or hold." -James Suckling
Notes of cassis, red and black pepper, and spices. There are beautiful mineral notes and integrated oak characteristics such as vanilla, caramel, and smoke. The mature and soft tannins are round with a fresh acidity. Concentrated, balanced, and full-flavored, it displays both elegance and freshness.
Pairs well with grilled meats such as chicken, pork and beef. Try with sharp cheeses, wild mushrooms or grilled vegetables
