Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2013

(77% cabernet sauvignon, 17% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc; 3.8 pH; 12.7% alcohol):  Medium red with an amber rim.  Precise aromas of red fruits, dried herbs and earth.  Then more herbs, minty chocolate and dark fruits on the palate, lifted by a note of faded flowers.  The long, creamy finish features truffles and brown spices.  While a recently tasted magnum was drinking beautifully, another 750-ml. bottle was tired, earthy and drying.  This note reflects the better 750, which I think is more typical of this wine.  Harvested between September 25 and October 10.
