“A barrel sample composed of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 9% Petit Verdot, very deep inky black colored, it opens with classic cassis, plums and cedar notes with hints of damp soil, underbrush and tar. Very firm and wonderfully ripe in terms of flavors and tannins, it has a beautifully approachable yet firm texture and very long, earth-laced finish. 300 cases are expected to be made.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (#234)
