Expert Reviews

94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011

Inky purple.  Highly perfumed aromas of blackcurrant, cherry-cola, cracked pepper, roasted coffee and rose oil.  Then suave and expansive in the mouth, with an alluring sweetness to the complex flavors of dark berry preserves, candied licorice and tobacco.  This rich but energetic cabernet really stains the palate but shows no excess weight.  Finishes sweet and extremely long, with resonating floral and cherry notes.

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...
