90(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , June 2014

Good full ruby.  Fresh aromas of raspberry, cola, cinnamon, smoke and graphite.  At once silky and juicy, offering good intensity and a light touch to the smoky dark berry and graphite flavors.  Nicely penetrating wine with lovely vinosity and spicy, fruity persistence.  Boasts lovely texture and balance, offering plenty of early appeal but with the stuffing to age and improve another ten years.  This strikes me as one of the most successful Left Bank wines in 2011.
