Reviews
• Wine Enthusiast: 90 Thick, reductive and tannic in intensity, this bold, flavorful wine is dense in black cherry, violet and lavender, with toasted oak and meaty garrigue in the background. It is blended with small amounts of Petite Sirah, Carignane and Alicante Bouschet, which contribute additional complexity and peppery seasoning.
