93 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2013
(95% petit verdot, with 2.5% grenache and 2.5% old-vines carignan): Deep, saturated ruby. Crushed blackberry and licorice on the nose, accented by black pepper. Sweet and densely packed, offering impressive weight and palate presence to the lightly saline flavors of of blackberry, boysenberry, dark plum, violet and dark chocolate. Wonderfully subtle, primary and deep, already showing remarkable flavor interest for young petit verdot. Expands and lingers on the slowly building, very long finish, with ripe tannins reaching the front teeth. Superb depth of material here, and a finishing hint of graphite.
