Wine Advocate | Rating: 91-93

The brilliant 2007 is inky/ruby/purple in color and is accompanied by sweet scents of melted chocolate, licorice, forest floor, and gobs of black cherry and cassis fruit, and a wine with a superb texture, an opulent, flamboyant mouthfeel, and a stunning finish. It should drink nicely for a decade or more.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Supple and beautifully layered, with black cherry and toasty vanilla aromas and currant, spice and roasted sage flavors that start delicately and then build to a rich, ripely tannic finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 500 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

($75; a blend of merlot and cabernet franc) Bright red-ruby. High-pitched, slightly candied aromas of crushed red berries and plum lifted by a whiff of rose petal. A juicy, sweet, slightly high-toned fruit bomb, with good energy to its creamy, exotic red berry flavors. Boasts lovely clarity and finishing perfume.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
