"Softly round and voluptuous in style, this wine offers oaky char overtones and brawny black fruit. Full bodied, it finishes with secondary characteristics of leather and black pepper that balance well against the dense fruit. - VIRGINIE BOONE"
"Ruby color. Aromas of vanilla-mint, honey-thyme lemonade, strawberry ice cream with hot fudge, and cedar with a velvety, crisp, fruity medium body and a warming, appealing, long chocolate gelato, graham cracker crust, whipped creme with nutmeg, cigar wrapper, and dulce de leche finish with well-integrated, silky tannins and moderate oak. A silky-smooth Napa treat packed with creamy-delicious flavors."
