Displaying deep, dark garnet color and lovely aromas of marion berry, bramble, chocolate plum and all-spice; the palate is lush and concentrated with boysenberry, cassis, anise and semisweet chocolate. Rewarding now, this wine will continue to evolve and delight for 5-10 years.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Well-built, with a firm core of dark berry, cherry and wilted rose, showing good density and intensity. This gains depth and holds focus, ending with ripe, chewy tannins. Drink now through 2022. 20,000 cases made. -JL

Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Classic Hall Cabernet, blended with some Merlot and ultrarich and smooth in cherries, raspberries, sweet plums and mocha. The high alcohol is balanced, and this is quite delicious and drinkable. Ready now and should hang in there for at least six years. (Nov 2013)
