What the Pros Say: Wine Enthusiast - 91 Points: " This blends 53% Cabernet Sauvignon with 29% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc from the producer's estate in the heart of the appellation. Together, they form a spicy, pleasing palate that's velvety smooth, soft and rounded, the richness relatively tame. Underlying currant, mocha and oak notes contribute additional complexity."
