Wine SpectatorOffers a dark, plush feel, with roasted fig and warm currant preserves notes flowing over dark tobacco and bittersweet cocoa flavors, followed by a solid, tarry-edged finish. Drink now through 2019. 18,750 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThis property seems to get relatively good representation in the United States. The 2009 is made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Attractive loamy soil notes intermixed with black currants and mulberries jump from the glass of this fruity, solidly constructed, mid-weight wine. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
