"Freshness is the hallmark of this wine. The fruit is dominant, ripe and balanced with blackberry acidity. There is a possible hint of overextraction, but that is only a small failing in such a delicious wine."
"Aromas of cedar, spice box, incense, burning embers, black currants, and new wood jump from the glass of this full-bodied, structured effort. Behaving more like a Pauillac than a Margaux, it is a long, concentrated, powerful wine meant for long aging. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025."
