International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 157

Deep red-ruby. Oaky aromas and flavors of sweet berries, licorice and spices. Silky and sweet on entry, then quite broad and suave in the middle, with ripe balancing acids giving shape to the wine's flavors. Finishes with broad, serious, building tannins and excellent length. A strong showing for this wine, which is built to age.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 194

A strong effort, this 2008 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, more minerality than the 2010 and hints of cedarwood, black currants, underbrush and forest floor. This round, generous blend of 66.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33.5% Merlot should easily last for two decades or more.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

This is rounded and pure, with red and black currant, black tea, roasted apple wood and sanguine notes all gliding through the supple, focused finish. Not big, but has balance and length.

Miguel L Trust Rating: 100 Tasted On: 03/27/2009

2008 barrel sample at chateau. Clean attack, fresh fruit, bright and pronounced acidity, a little unbalanced on the finish at this point but should resolve itself. Tannic. 66.5% CS; 31.5% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot. 47% of harvest. A step behind Pavillon Rouge for top 2nd wine of the Firsts. 88-90 points.
