89(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
(this bottling was previously called Facets; a blend of 68% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot and 4% each cabernet franc and petit verdot): Good full ruby. Cool aromas of blueberry, anise, herbs and licorice. Supple on entry, then a bit clenched in the middle, with fairly pronounced herbal and menthol notes to the flavors of black fruits, chocolate and spices. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. This Yountville estate changed hands in 2008, and the new owners are now keeping all the fruit for their own estate bottlings.
