92-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2013

(90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc; 80% new oak):  Deep ruby.  Exceptionally pure aromas of fresh blackcurrant, blueberry, minerals, violet and sweet spices.  Sweet, suave and dense, with highly refined flavors of red berries, blackberry and cinnamon, and an impression of sucrosité that is truly unforgettable.  The finish is long and delicately peppery, with lingering nuances of cinnamon, vanilla and strawberry jam and building, youthfully chewy but noble tannins.  This very refined wine may turn out to be one of the handful of stars of the vintage.  The merlot was harvested between Sept 21 and October 4, and the cabernet franc on October 6th.
