The Baltimore Sun

Here's a wine worth putting away in a cool place for five to 10 years, but if you insist on drinking it now, you'll still be rewarded. This classy blend of cabernet sauvignon, syrah, merlot and malbec delivers terrific balance and complexity - with flavors of black cherry, smoked meat, chocolate and herbs. It's a full-bodied, layered wine with exceptional potential and all the penetration you expect of fruit from California's Napa Valley.
