I first discovered this wine on a favorite restaurant's list, thinking I'd not seen the brand offer anything at this price point for years, and then promptly enjoyed it immensely with dinner. The current vintage delivers the same sort of value, with some of the fruit coming from the winery's famed Pritchard Hill fruit. It hits the company standard nicely, with brooding blackberry, pomegranate, lively oak spice and a supple structure that keeps the flavors coming. Decant vigorously and enjoy over the next five years. Contains 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc.Rich Cook 91
