"75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc. Boasts fabulous notes of graphite, blackberries, blackcurrant liqueur, camphor, barbecue smoke and spice box. Rich, full-bodied and opulent with plenty of tannin and structure lurking beneath the extravagant generosity of fruit, this stunning 2012 should drink well for 25-30+ years." WA 96-100

Fruits are fresh and run juicy to dry. Black plum, blackberries, dark raspberries, bit of stewed strawberries, tannins are dusty/gritty, leather, spicebox, baking spices, dark powdery minerals, good acidity, balance and finish. Check it again in 8-10 years but good for 20 years.

Dark cherries,black licorice nose. Super dark cassis fruit that moves into mid red fruits on the palate. Caramel, dry rose, sweet spice, rich dark wet earth.

The nose leads you down a path to oak and very ripe fruit notes, however the palate is pure, precise like a howitzer shell of tannin and structure. Should be killer in 10+ years as the palate is fresh, with very good balance and acidity. Complexity with age should increase the score and my interest but right now it needs time.

A true powerhouse. Under the thick-as-port black fruit is a brooding minerality and a haunting smoky, loamy earth character. This is a HUGE vintage. Behemoth. Gargantuan. Complex and long on the palate, with a definite "whoa" factor on the finish.

Can't wait to see what 20 years will do to this wine. Even though I am giving a great review it is like taking a pizza out of the oven to soon.
