"93 Points. The vines are grown on the sandy soil of Blewitt Springs, machine-harvested, crushed, 7 days on skins, matured for 18 months in various hogsheads. This is presented without fanfare, simply faithfully reflecting Blewitt Springs's ability to confer that extra bit of intensity and length, radiating health. $24.00 14.5% alc.
