Massive backbone with gobbles of ripe red and blue fruits. Polished, chewy tannins. Creme de cassis, menthol, blackberry confite. Had next to Abreu, Madrona ranch and Insignia, both 2002, and they were the wines of the night.

Had this one at churrasqueria argentina with good friends and wife. It was marvelous. A perfect marriage between french elegance and American Power. It had such an incredible nose of cream de cassis liqueur, dark fruit marmalade. The balance was impeccable. Longley fresh and minty finish. Amazing
