Wine Advocate"Bottled in April, 2000, this elegant, stylish, graceful wine is an attractive, dark ruby/purple-colored effort with subtle notes of sweet oak, licorice, herbs, and black fruits. While not massive, it is medium-bodied and ripe, with sweet tannin. Forty-eight percent of the production was utilized in this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018."
Wine SpectatorSlightly herbal, with dried rosemary and mint underneath the blackberry character on the nose. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a light finish.
