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

Bright ruby.  Pungent aromas of candied raspberry, licorice, espresso and graphite, with a hint of meat.  Sweet, broad and voluptuous; lush, large-scaled and glyceral for the vintage.  This compellingly creamy, seamless wine shows an almost confectionery quality to its raspberry and chocolate flavors.  Finishes with utterly silky tannins and outstanding length.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot.
