Marquis Fruit Weight (your guarantee of quality): 90%
"Dark opaque violet with deep crimson hue, this wine bursts from the glass with a dense melange of berry fruits, dark plum, liquorice, and fragrant spice. The palate displays layers of sweet fruit with creamy mocha oak, black pepper hints and superbly balanced tannins, seeming to last for an eternity." -Winery
WS 94pts- Dense, rich and distinctive, this is superplush and complex, yet also approachable, wrapping its black cherry, cassis, licorice and roasted meat flavors on a supple, velvety frame. Finishes long and creamy in texture.” Wine Spectator #98 of 2012
93pts. Smooth as velvet! Needs a good 45 min+ decant to open.
