Tasting Notes:
Aged for 18 months in French barriques; hand-picked and sorted; fantastic complexity and vitality with layers of well ripened dark fruits; structured and fruit driven, blackcurrant fruit and lovely spicy nuances finishing with fine grained tannins; subtle layers of complexity arise from fruit harvested at the pinnacle of ripeness

Other Reviews:
89% cabernet sauvignon, 4% petit verdot, 3% merlot and 2% each of malbec and cabernet franc blended after fermentation, hand-picked and sorted, destemmed (66% whole berries), wild-fermented in stainless steel, average 23 days on skins, matured in French oak (69% new) for 18 months. Right in the slot of the style established (with some polishing and refining) over the years. The complexity of the texture and structure is second to none, led by the born to rule cabernet, the other varieties obviously of minor importance, but important nonetheless. The might of the tannins is the key to this great wine.
