92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Explosive aromas of cassis, violet and menthol. Large-scaled, chewy and sweet, with dark fruit and strong spicy oak flavors shaped and extended by building tannins. According to Long Shadows resident winemaker Gilles Nicault, this wine, made jointly by Agustin Huneeus, Sr. and Philip Melka, underwent a long maceration. It will need at least several years of bottle aging to express itself. (64% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot, 9% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot) (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2011)
