Critical Acclaim

"A blend of just over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot (last year I mistakenly wrote that the balance was Cabernet Franc), the opaque ruby/purple-colored 2009 reveals notes of scorched earth/burning embers/charcoal, black currants, ripe cherries and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin, this is an under-the-radar, high quality claret to drink over the next 20-25 years."
94 Points

"A wine with lovely dark berries and chocolates follows through to a full body with chewy tannins and a fit finish. Very in form. Best ever?"
93 Points

"Good full, bright ruby-red. Inviting aromas of black raspberry, graphite, charcoal, tobacco and crushed stone. Lush and thick on entry, then densely packed and fine-grained, with excellent energy and definition to its concentrated, lightly medicinal flavors of black cherry, licorice and minerals. Boasts terrific volume for this bottling, and a long finish that features building, ripe tannins. There's excellent sweetness here but the wine's youthfully medicinal character argues for at least four or five years of patience."
