94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006

(72% cabernet, 19% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot; Pierre Seillan's Pauillac-style blend) Good bright ruby-red.

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.
