Expert Reviews

90 Points | Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
93(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

(72% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 12% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot; 3.67 pH; 70 IPT; 13.4% alcohol):  Deep ruby.  Delicate aromas of  blackcurrant, mocha and graphite are lifted by minerals and violet.  Enters pure, dense and round, then shows lively, precise flavors of black fruits, dried nuts, ink and minerals.  This has greater volume and flesh than the 2006, along with a brooding, sneaky concentration and a very long, supple finish.  The best Lynch-Bages in years, this should prove to be a great wine in time, and a huge success for this estate.
