92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2014
(from vines at least 80 years of age; raised in new French oak for 15 months; from a crop level of just 12 hectoliters per hectare, vs. 14 for the other two single-vineyard 2011s): Bright, full medium ruby. Blackberry, licorice, violet and a musky hint of leather on the nose. Like liquid silk in the mouth, with a dense, seamless texture to the flavors of currant, blackberry and saline minerality. Still a bit youthfully tight owing to some peppery acidity, but I still find this wine easier now than the 2010 was a year ago. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and lovely lingering sweetness.
