92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013

(aged in 80% new French oak):  Good saturated ruby-red.  Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violet, leather and herbs.  Sappy, juicy and attractively sweet, with rather claret-like flavors of dark berries, herbs and spices.  Nicely combines an Old World silkiness of texture with the ripeness of Mendoza cabernet.  The long, rising finish features very smooth tannins.  Classy juice, and long on personality.

Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
