Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2006 The Bard, a combination of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Petit Verdot, and 12% Merlot, offers beautiful notes of graphite, smoked herbs, burning embers, blackberries, and cassis. Ripe, broad fruit flavors are loaded with glycerin and extract. This extravagantly opulent 2006 reveals a long, heady finish with no hard edges. Despite the relatively high percentage of Petit Verdot, it can be drunk now and over the next 12-15+ years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Pure, rich, focused and concentrated, with a supple, graceful mix of ripe plum, currant and black cherry fruit that's both rich and elegant, graceful and balanced, ending with a long, persistent finish.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($85; a blend of 64% cabernet sauvignon, 24% petit verdot and 12% merlot) Complex aromas of redcurrant, black cherry, cocoa powder, herbs and mint. Plump and lush, with good life and noteworthy depth to the fruit and spice flavors. The tannins are firm but sweeter than those of the Tempest and the finish boasts lovely aromatic persistence.

Let this guy breathe for at least 45 minutes. You will be thankful you did. Once done, beautiful bouquet on the nose with softness of the Bordeaux varietals kicking in.
