96(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , June 2010

Deep ruby-red. Highly complex but subdued nose melds currant, dried cherry, violet, clove, licorice and dusty herbs; less obviously ripe than the 2002 but also much subtler today. Mineral-driven, sharply delineated and classic, with strong mineral, spice and dark fruit flavors carrying through to the impressively long, rising finish, which boasts superb energy and lingering graphite minerality. This is Pauillac to the 2002's Pomerol, and is also structured for a long and positive evolution in bottle. A great and classic example of its vintage.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay.
