Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2012 Grand Reserve offers excellent aromatics, including spicebox,black currants and a touch of oak before this medium-bodied,fleshy wine hits the palate. Very good balance, sweet tannin, and plush fruit make for a fairly priced wine to drink now-2023. (Dec 2014)

Layers of blackberry, raspberry and mocha flavors are rounded off with black cherry, currant, cassis, and tobacco. Intense, yet polished with sturdy tannins. This wine is to savor now or cellar for future enjoyment. Pair with grilled steaks or roast pork.
