Tasting NotesThe proprietary red blend claret The most fruit-forward, delicious, sexy wine in the portfolio, with soft tannins, loads of raspberry, blueberry, and blackcurrant fruit, licorice and forest floor in a medium to full-bodied, silky smooth style. This is sexy, yet at the same time complex. 93 pts
~R. Parker, Wine Advocate

A red with orange peel, plums and spices on the nose. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish... Very pretty. 92 pts
