Our 2012 Estate Red is rich and smooth with a beautiful deep purple color. Aroma descriptors include blueberries, plums, tobacco pipe, cocoa powder, anise, and soy. The complex flavor profile includes a lot of black fruits, black cherry, bubblegum, chocolate, and vanilla. The finish is long with balanced acidity and abundant fruit sweetness, a great balance of fruit and spice. Textured yet silky, the wine is very appealing in its youth, but will also age beautifully for the next 10 years. enere

Wine EnthusiastThis behemoth is all gristle and power, voluptuously combining 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 4% Syrah and 2% Carmenere in a mad scientist's way. Velvety, it's beyond full-bodied in blackberry and chocolate, integrated in terms of oak, with a splash of black pepper and tobacco on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

Wine SpectatorWell done and flexing tannic muscle, this offers a taut mix of roasted coffee, dried herb, compact dark berry and cedary cigar box notes. Chewy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère. Drink now through 2028. 13,061 cases made.
