Description

"...It has a vibrant purple color as well as primarily Cabernet notes of cassis, blackberries, graphite, and tomacco leaf. Deep, medium to full-bodied and elegant on the palate, it's a beautiful wine that has the stuffing and balance to keep for a decade (although I see no need to delay gratification)." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"...powerful, dense and voluptuous, all qualities that are easy to enjoy on the young side. Wild black cherry, new leather, leather and spice are given an extra kick of sweetness from the American oak winemaker Blair Fox uses for this wine. Exuberant juicy, the Syrah-Cabernet has a lot to offer. Year after year, it is one of my personal favorites in this range." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
