Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Offers wonderful richness, depth and concentration, with pure currant, black cherry and berry fruit that's supple, polished and very ripe, but still well within bounds. Ends with a long, rich, complex finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

Definitely in prime drinking shape. Given no decant time due the nature of this dinner auction event, the wine performed incredibly well. Luscious dark fruit aromas, velvety mouth feel, and a long finish. A real crowd pleaser.

I did not take formal notes, but JH did and I typed them out: "Deep dark rich color. On the nose concentrated dark black cherry, plum, blackcurrant, and raspberry fruit, followed roses, chocolate, spices, and spanish cedar with a hint of menthol. The palate is brawny but elegant and polished, full and complex with rich concentrated flavors and nice balance. The finish is generously long, rich, and complex. This wine can be enjoyed now, or will age well and improve for years." He was at 98, I was at 96. Regardless, great wine especially for a CaliBordeaux in the $100 range
