Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Intense aromas of blackberry and light vanilla. Full-bodied, with velvety fruit and a long, caressing finish. Pretty, ultramodern and very good quality for the vintage.

Decanted for about 2 hours. This was a dark wine, with a nose of fruit, cherry and leather. The taste was pleasant if not complex with leather and fruit and tobacco. Finish was a little short. Overall, a bit disappointing given its pedigree. Best wine of the night though, consumed at my Promotion party. Drink now.
