87 pts. Wine Spectator Tasting Highlights, February 13, 2020. “Effusively minty, with freshly crushed red fruit and spice flavors that feature crisp acidity. Dark chocolate notes show on the finish. Drink now.”
Deep red with a purple hue. Aromas reminiscent of black cherries, raspberries, mint and tobacco are complemented with notes of vanilla and mocha from the French oak barrels the wine was aged in. This Cabernet Sauvignon is lively and fresh, with supple tannins and excellent length. – Importer’s notes.
