Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes
"Upon first inhale, you'll be struck by scents of cinnamon, mulling spices and black plum jam. On the palate there is a linear, focused, fresh bing cherry-like acid complemented by notes of mocha, candied blood orange peel and toasted almond. The tannins are chalky, fine and delicate on the finish."

"Dusty, silky tannins wrap themselves around dried herb, cedar and rich, dark chocolate in this powerhouse of a wine, dense and concentrated. Blackberry and currant peak on the lingering, cigar- and clove-tinged finish."
92 Points - James Suckling
"A firm and linear red with blueberry, dark chocolate and volcanic salt aromas and flavors. Full body, lightly chewy tannins. Drink in 2018."
92 Points - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Well-crafted and beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense ruby/purple with lots of pure crème de cassis, good acidity, great purity and plenty of blue, red and black flavors. This is full bodied, classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for 15-20 years.”
