"Delicious and classy, this is based on Merlot, with the other four classic Bordeaux varieties in proper proportion. It flatters immediately with its wealth of blackberries, black cherries, cola and mocha that finish so dry and spicy, yet it has that extra complexity that makes it intellectually interesting. Drink now and over the next six years. —S.H."

This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec can compete with the great Bordeaux blends from the other side of the hill, and at a fraction of the price. Beautifully structured, rich, powerful, and well balanced, Cuvee Kristin exhibits aromas of blackberry, plum, and spice, with a touch of mocha on the finish. It is absolutely world class.

"A beautiful Cabernet, this has all the hallmarks of a fine wine. It’s dry, rich in tannins and elegant, with long, deep flavors of blackberries, currants and dark chocolate. It’s already throwing some sediment, so give it a careful decant. Editors’ Choice. —S.H."

"Huge, flashy and dramatic, this shows brilliantly ripened fruit and an exquisite texture. Flavor wise, it tastes like pure pie filling seasoned with baking spices. But there’s nothing sweet in the finish. Instead, the wine is thoroughly and properly dry, as Merlot should be.
