Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Bionic Frog “Coccinella Vineyard” was aged in 100% Dominique Laurent “magic cask” barrels, 25% of them new. Opaque purple-colored, the wine has a fabulous perfume of violets and lavender as well grilled meat, game, and blueberry compote. Dense, powerful yet elegant, this splendid effort demands a decade of cellaring and should drink well through 2045."

"Smooth, supple and full-flavored, The Bionic Frog shows the characteristic uber-funk that it is known for. But in this new vintage it seems to be a bit less in-your-face than previously. There's plenty of wild herb, beef blood and silage to go around; but the flavors are already fully integrated, the wine viscous and plush with an intensely spicy quality. This is beautiful, thick and meaty yet still lifted through the finish, which keeps adding new scents and flavors as it sails along-vanilla, clove and baking spices."
96 Points

"Glows with plum and spice aromas, then gets serious on the palate, with layers of tar, molasses and coffee to meld with the plum and cherry flavors. The subtle finish lingers and lingers. Drink now through 2014."
94 Points

"Deep ruby-red. Explosive aromas of woodsmoke, minerals, coffee, mocha, gingerbread, olive tapenade and gunflint. Huge, lush and sweet, with a deeply layered texture and slowly mounting wild berry and gingerbread flavors. This boasts terrific depth of fruit. As fat and full as it is, it manages to hold its shape on the very long finish."
