89(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
(a blend of all five red Bordeaux varieties): Bright red-ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas of dark berries, licorice and chocolate. A supple blend with restrained sweetness, but a bit sullen today as a strong chocolatey quality currently mutes the wine's fruit. Plenty of material here but showing less lift today than this producer's basic Napa Valley cabernet bottling. Tannins are dusty and slightly dry. Made from reserve lots that were vinified and aged separately before being blended.
