Tight and a bit nutty on the nose with soft suggestions of blackcurrants and black raspberries under sweet, toasted oak spice. This is lean and focused in the mouth and while wood tannins add their mark early on the palate I can see them resolving with time leaving the slightly creamy yet clear fresh mineral edged red currant and wild raspberry fruit a little more room to grow in the mouth. Today the wine feels compressed on the back end and while there is decent length it driven by nutty, toasty wood flavors as much as fruit. Undeniably elegant though and with attractive purity. 89pts

(754 views) Tasted by team-blackburn on 7/23/2010 & rated 88 points: Very good QPR lots of fruit with mellow tannis, drink early. (828 views) Tasted by communion on 7/10/2009 & rated 89 points: I think i keep buying MR because I like the name and label. I had low expectations on this bottle because I've not been happy with the more expensive diamond mt versions. I was pleasantly suprized when it came across as a nice and well balanced $25 cali cab. Moderate well integrated oak. firm and balanced tannins. I'll get a couple more if I can get them on sale. (960 views)
