90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012

(blended with 8% cabernet franc, 5% petit verdot, 3% merlot and 1% malbec; aged in 75% new oak for 18 months):  Good bright ruby.  Complex nose offers plum, black cherry, graphite, flowers, menthol and cedary oak.  Nicely fleshy but not at all muscular, with a juicy, penetrating character to the cassis, licorice, cedar and spice flavors.  An elegantly styled cabernet with firm but smooth tannins, from a vintage that winemaker Genevieve Janssens describes as "cold."
