Critical Acclaim

"The earthy, smoky notes intermixed with notions of black fruits and road tar found in this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot are classic Graves traits. Sweet, dense fruit, with tremendous opulence, a layered mouthfeel, and excellent purity, freshness, and ripe tannins are displayed in abundance in this beautifully made offering from proprietor Helene Garcin. It should age effortlessly for 20 years. Range: 92-94+"
94 Points

"A wine that offers all the right characters. The fruit has a lively, vivid juiciness, with sweet berry fruits. The tannins have just a touch of toast, but essentially come from the dense fruit.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Wild, smoky aromas of redcurrant, plum, meat and leather. Concentrated, saline and serious, with a slightly rustic quality to the plum and leather flavors. A firm but fine coating of tannins give this seamless wine good spine. "
