Deep purple color, yet not opaque. A sense of finesse in the color which suggests liveliness on the palate. The mouth feel is angular, with grace and precision. The 2011 vintage produced a savory character in the wines, like that of fennel, salt, tar and steel. Highly integrated tannins, dusty in a sense, alongside protective acidity guarding against premature oxidation.

Wine SpectatorSoft and supple, with notes of tea leaf and orange peel adding interest to the cherry and tobacco flavors, which linger gently. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2016.
