93(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2012
(64% cabernet sauvignon, 22% cabernet franc and 14% merlot): Saturated, bright full red. A bit redder on the nose than the Ciel du Cheval bottling, with notes of raspberry and strawberry syrup accented by dusty minerality. Then fatter, richer and more powerful in the mouth, showing more breadth and texture than the Ciel but not quite the same floral cut. Concentrated red fruit and spice flavors are joined by earth tones on the long finish, which features strong, building tannins.
