Expert Reviews

87-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012

(54% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 7% cabernet franc, 1% petit verdot and 1% carmenère): Bright deep ruby-purple.  Gorgeous nose combines fresh blackberry, blackcurrant syrup and aromatic herbs, lifted by a floral note.  Enters bright and fresh, displaying lovely purity and precision to its juicy red and black fruit flavors.  Finishes long and crisp, with smooth tannins and a delicate herbal nuance that does not detract from the wine's pleasure.  Not a blockbuster Clerc Milon but one that relies on finesse and juicy acidity for its appeal.
