90  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 90"This red shows focus and good density, with ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and plum accented with toast and coffee, all supported by well-integrated tannins. Leafy and minerally accents linger on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 10,000 cases imported." –TM
