94 Points - The Wine Advocate
This wine has a deep garnet color with crimson hues. Complex aromas of cherries, raisins, dried flowers, smoky vanilla, and cigar box are apparent on the nose while flavors of red fruits and sweet spices abound on the palate. This is a rich, fullbodied wine with velvety soft tannins and balanced acidity and a long, appealing finish.

Good full medium red. Strawberry, mocha and smoke on the nose. Fat, full and round; broad and stuffed with material but quite backward today. Distinct autumnal notes here rather than high-pitched flowers. Finishes silky and very long, with suave tannins
