(a five-variety Bordeaux blend based on 81% cabernet sauvignon): Good dark red. Expressive aromas and flavors of plum, redcurrant, tobacco, hot stones, brown sugar and cedary oak. Sweet and fine-grained in the mouth, with sexy chocolate and mocha notes adding appeal. Spreads out generously on the ripely tannic aftertaste. A very impressive vintage for this bottling.

Rich fruit, nice nose, but a hint of an odd medicinal note. Good to very good, but at $105 a bottle, doesn't seem to stand out in a crowded field. I have 2 bottles left and would like to see how it develops in a year or two. Not sure if I would buy again; will skip the 2011 and reconsider with the 2012.
