93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009
(a blend of 57% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot, 11% petit verdot and 7% cabernet franc) Good saturated medium ruby. Complex but reticent nose hints at minerals, dried herbs, sweet spices, hot gravel and tobacco. Quite closed but very deep on the palate, with an exotic spice quality (cardamom?) lifting the powerful dark fruit and menthol flavors. This very broad, classically dry wine reminded me of a top claret from the Medoc-and with its rather powerful tannins it may well age like a Bordeaux. Very unevolved today.
