    Winemaker's Notes:

    #95 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    The 2009 growing season experienced a cool spring followed by a warm summer. Favorable temperatures provided for good ripening and resulted in intensely concentrated flavors, healthy grapes, and excellent red, ripe fruit flavors with elegant yet powerful tannins.

    Blend: 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah, 25% Carmenere, 18% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark crushed cherries, cassis and graphite notes are supported by a full-bodied frame of fine tannins and fresh acidity, as the compact finish unwinds with hints of cured olive, grilled herb and spice.

    Notes of cassis, cola, cedar, tobacco, lemon and a twinge of eucalyptus comprise the bouquet on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenere and Merlot. It tastes of cassis, blackberry, herb and chocolate; the finish is solid and minty, with a suggestion of cigar tobacco. This rocks hard, but with focus.

    Somewhat dissapointing. Did not live up to the hype or rating. Improved after breathing for a couple of hours. Still good for the price.
