94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2006
(72% cabernet, 19% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot; Pierre Seillan's Pauillac-style blend) Good bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry, graphite, iron, tobacco, menthol and spice cake. Lush and broad on entry, then sweeter and lusher in the middle palate than the Muse, with a captivating chocolatey quality and outstanding volume. As rich and full as this is, there's no sense of excess weight. Finishes long, dense and palate-saturating with major dusty tannins. This "Pauillac" is sweeter and deeper than Seillan's "Pomerol," a comment on the comparative quality of cabernet sauvignon and merlot in California's North Coast.
