Critical Acclaim

"This has muscle, but is fleshy and almost creamy along the edges, with a very dense core of plum, blackberry and cassis waiting in reserve. A sleek iron edge cruises in on the finish and adds some serious length.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points"
95 Points

"Big tannins, smoky wood notes and prominent fruit mark this wine, along with acidity and freshness. It’s powerful, with the most gentle structure of concentrated dusty tannins and intensely-fresh blackberry-juice flavors.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points"
95 Points

"Opaque inky-purple. Inky graphite and cedar notes complicate rich, deep cassis aromas on the refined nose. Youthfully chewy and tannic on the palate, with a saline mineral quality complicating the deep black fruit and smoky herb flavors. The long finish features a repeating mineral tang.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"This splendid Pauillac estate's 2011 exhibits an impressively saturated ruby/purple color as well as notes of spring flowers interwoven with creme de cassis, licorice and background incense and toasty oak. The tannins are firm and the wine is medium-bodied and rich with layers of fruit and extract as well as a long finish. An outstanding example of the vintage, it will need 3-4 years of cellaring and should drink well for 15-20 years.
Barrel Sample: 90-92+ Points"
