International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($35) Deep red. Pure aromas of blackberry, violet and licorice, lifted by minty and herbal nuances. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, with spices and a light herbal quality contributing to the impression of lift and definition. Finishes with dusty tannins that seem a bit less gritty than they appeared to be a year ago from barrel.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 181

As I indicated last year, quality has improved dramatically at this estate, and the 2006 is a quintessentially elegant Bordeaux displaying a dark ruby/purple color, a lovely bouquet of forest floor, sweet cherries, cranberries, and black currants, medium body, a textured, sweet, tannic mouthfeel, and a long finish. Everything is beautifully pure as well as perfectly balanced in this outstanding effort.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Blackberry and sweet tobacco follow through to a medium body, with slightly aggressive tannins and a medium finish. Chewy. Needs time to mellow.

Extremely unapproachable at this stage. Raw, really sour and acidic, and totally disjointed. Bitter and tannic. Is this wine ever going to be good? Don't think anything was wrong with this bottle - either this wine sucks or it's in a really awkward phase...

Classically consistent, please see my past note as this is drinking just like the last bottle. BTW I opened this at 7:30am and started to drink it at 6pm through 11pm. Such a great value in Bordeaux.
