    ($40) Good red-ruby. Expressive nose offers cherry liqueur, currant, coffee, mocha and menthol, plus a meaty nuance. Supple and sweet, with lovely stuffing and depth of flavor. Not a big boy, but ripe acids give it good balance. Spreads out nicely to coat the palate on the finish. This has turned out very well.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

    A strong effort from the Becot family, this blend of 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a saturated dense ruby/purple color, sweet notes of creme de cassis, cherries, earth, and subtle herbs, a spicy, medium to full-bodied, soft, opulent style, and a fleshy, long finish. Enjoy this hedonistic yet complex wine over the next 12-15 years. Just under 6,000 cases were produced.

    Blackish crimson. Rather simple and raw on the nose with a singed quality. Very dry tannins. Uncharming. Very very dry. And dull.Lack of fruit in the middle.

    Very grapey and fresh on the nose, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a complex, subtle aftertaste of vanilla, blueberry and cream. Long and refined.

    Being that 04 was a decent but not astounding year in Bordeaux, a lot of the 04's are very accessible right now. This wine is a good example. It's not amazing, the complexity is lacking but the flavors are still good. This wine is a little thin but shows some good fruit up front with some vanilla and dark fruit pushing through on the mid. The finish dissipates fairly quickly but that's fine. A good wine for a good price.
