Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : The color is dark ruby/purple. The wine is medium-bodied with aromas of black fruits, weedy tobacco, petrol, and earth. The dry, hard tannin in the finish is worrisome, but it appears to be balanced by the wine's depth and extract. While this is not a great La Mission, it is a very good one with moderate aging potential.
Blend : 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc.
