15% alc.

Lots of (French) oak on both the nose and palate.
I could see this score high with certain critics based on the sheer size but I found it somewhat out of balance and have doubts it will ever "find its feet".

Still a VERY good wine but given the pedigree (and price point) I was expecting a bit more.

18.5/20 (96/100) 100% каберне совиньон, купаж с трёх участков, винифицированных отдельно. Насыщенный, комплексный аромат с нотами кедра, ментола, спелых чёрных ягод, крем де кассис, лакрицы, шоколада, гвоздики и мускатного ореха. Тельное с пронзительной, но сбалансированной кислотностью. Насыщенное во вкусе. Пышное великолепие. #dfwe2019

Delicious big boy Cabernet. Dark berries and cocoa with a luxurious, velvety texture.

Tight blackberries and currant some leather. Think this is going to be a knockout as it opens up. Incredible !!

2012 is a great vintage. Should be able to age well, but great to enjoy right now. Slightly drier than the Couer de Vallee.
