"The aroma is of plums and blackberry with fine leather and cigar box notes. The oak gives hints of spice and sweet vanilla. While the palate combines plum and blackberry together with dried fruit and hints of date are supported by char and vanilla from oak barrel maturation. Some game and leathery characters describe the finish. Ripe fruit, spicy oak and firm tannins create a robust, complex wine. Merlot 43%, Cabernet Sauvignon 36%, Cabernet Franc 11% and Malbec 10%."

3 stars "deep red color, a very Bordeaux-like nose with gamey and rose petal notes. The palate is Bordeaux-like but still earthy with firm tannins and a rather long aftertaste."
