93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011

(81% cabernet sauvignon, along with merlot, cabernet franc, malbec, petit verdot, carmenere and St. Macaire; as with the 2004 and 2006 bottlings, this wine includes all seven varieties planted in this vineyard):  Bright ruby-red.  Perfumed nose offers plum, black cherry, graphite, mocha, cedar, chocolate mint and sexy toasty oak (75% new).  Compellingly sweet and pliant, with a velvety texture given shape by harmonious acidity.  Still a bit ungiving on the firmly tannic finish, which hints at menthol.  This very rich, pure wine needs time in bottle to develop more complexity and should be long-lived.

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
