Expert Reviews

88-91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(68% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 3% cabernet franc):  Dark ruby.  Very rich aromas of red cherry, cassis, cocoa, violet and minerals.  Sweet and creamy in the mouth, with tactile red and black fruit and spicy mineral flavors carrying through to the long, perfumed finish, which features big but polished tannins.  This lovely wine just screams Saint-Julien in its classically refined delivery of cabernet sauvignon.
