Vinous Review: 91 points
"(50% carignan, 25% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, 8% petit verdot and 7% malbec): Bright violet color. Blackberry, cassis, lavender and tobacco on the fragrant nose. Focused and firmly structured, offering intense flavors of cherry-cola, dark berries and candied flowers. Finishes bright and long, with juicy acidity and slow-mounting, fine-grained tannins."
Wine Enthusiast Review: 89 points
"Firm, pinched aromas of rubbery berry and red fruits feed into a narrow, tomatoey palate with crisp, drawing acidity and tannins. This Carignan-led blend of five grapes is herbal and briny tasting, with tomato, cassis and red-berry flavors. Length, balance and drive push an herbal finish to a good ending."
