"A deep maroon complexion with hues of violet hints at the intensity of the 2013 vintage from first glance. Aromas of Tahitian vanilla and truffle spring forth accompanied by notes of blackcurrant and plum. These scents meld into flavors of black cherry, cassis, and fresh blackberry on the expansive palate. The coating espresso bean entry yields to a generous and lush flow of youthful yet integrated tannins making for a lengthy and seamless finish. An exceptional expression of a vintage that is sure to please today and for years to come. Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 3% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot"
"A succulent, fruity wine with currants, berries and lemon rind. Flowers, too. Medium-bodied, fresh and clean. Cedar undertones to this. Lively. Drink now or hold."
