“This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Grenache, with a spine that’s all ripe dark berries and cherries. But there’s enough savory herbs and peppery spices to keep it complex and layered. The texture is slightly creamy, with a lush, fruity palate, and a tobacco and toasted spice infused finish.” — 89 points, WINE ENTHUSIAST
