89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2012

(95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 13.5% alcohol):  Bright ruby-red.  The knockout nose of fresh blackcurrant, strawberry, cinnamon, marzipan, and white pepper had me going back to the glass again and again.  Bright, juicy and focused, showing moderately intense flavors of dark berries and Oriental spices.  The finish is long and pure, with very suave tannins.  All this wine needs for an outstanding score is a little more concentration and complexity; as it is, the captivating nose alone is worth 94 points.  This easy-drinking Magdelaine is perfect to drink now, and a great example of how average vintages can be real crowd-pleasers.
