Professional Reviews


International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($95) Dark red-ruby. Superripe but vibrant aromas of redcurrant, mocha, minerals and tobacco. Sweet, silky and seamless but not thick, thanks to a medicinal menthol quality that lifts the dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. This boasts very good energy and length, finishing with dusty, ripe tannins.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 186

Starting with the Matriarch, this wine is the easiest to drink young. Dark plum/purple, with plenty of smoke, black currants, espresso roast, oak, and chocolate, the 2006 is dense, round, and best drunk over the next decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Delicious, pure, rich and structured, with ripe cherry, plum, blackberry, mineral, anise and sage flavors that gain weight and depth. Full-bodied and firmly tannic, ending on a pleasant earthy note.

Not quite sure about this wine. Great nose, but very tannic (my tongue still feels fuzzy). Hard to get past the tannins to taste the wine, but it did soften with time and air. I will try decanting my last bottle for a couple hours before I drink it.

$105. Big nose of dark fruits. Nice on palate, very lush, still a lot of tannin but pleasant and will only get better with age. Long finish. David Abreu, Bob Levy.
