93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
(bottled in August 2011; 55.6% cabernet sauvignon, 23.8% cabernet franc, 16.9% merlot and 3.7% petit verdot): Good deep red. Fresh aromas of redcurrant, violet, minerals, licorice, menthol and forest floor; more floral than the flagship cabernet. Rich and sweet in the mouth, with terrific blue and black berry intensity. Not quite as suave as the flagship bottling but vibrant and very long; the tannins are chewy and broad but a bit less polished. Still youthfully tight.
