90 points "Sleek and focused, with a solid core of red currant fruit surrounded by sweet spice, toast and mineral notes. Long, pure finish has the flesh to match its sinew. Best vintage yet for this Italian-owned project. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2010. 4,500 cases made." Best 2008-2010

89 points "Little by little, this Bordeaux blend from Italian ownership is inching toward where it wants to be. The 2005 is the best of the wine’s four vintages to date, but even so it’s mildly sharp and racy in the mouth. In front of that, the bouquet deals a nice blend of cassis, plum, leather and truffle, and the finish is fresh. Could be an excellent wine with a softer, more complete mouthfeel; as is, it’s composed but slightly acidic."
