"The deep purple hues exhibited upon pouring this wine in the glass are very vibrant and appealing. On the nose there is wonderful intensity and complexity with plums, dark cherries, and hints of cigar box, toasty oak, and dark chocolate. On the palate this well balanced wine has a heavy structure and weight with a soft silky feel. The flavors mimic the aromas with added hints of spice and star anise that linger nicely leading to an enjoyable finish."

"Delicious and classy, this is based on Merlot, with the other four classic Bordeaux varieties in proper proportion. It flatters immediately with its wealth of blackberries, black cherries, cola and mocha that finish so dry and spicy, yet it has that extra complexity that makes it intellectually interesting. Drink now and over the next six years. —S.H."
