Wine SpectatorElegantly rustic, with savory herb and dusty earth accents amid loamy dark berry, cedar and sage flavors. Finishes strong if a little diffuse, yet the layers of complexity are evident. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Drink now through 2029. 5,492 cases made.
