95-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2007

((tasted from tanks, awaiting final blending. #1) Explosively floral, with remarkable purity and a strong licorice tone. #2: Spicier sample, with strong cherry pit and graphite on the palate and a bright, zesty quality. #3: Solid and chewy, with strong bitter cherry, dark chocolate and tobacco qualities ("this batch gives the wine its skeleton"). #4 (all Peleat): Incredibly sweet and minerally, like a great Griotte-Chambertin, with amazing purity of cherry and raspberry fruit. A great '04 in the making.
