Expert Reviews

86-88 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Good full red. Fruit-driven aromas are complicated by floral and licorice nuances. Fairly sweet and ripe in the middle palate, with tobacco, spice and licorice flavors of noteworthy purity. Very Pauillac in its dry, penetrating flavor, but I found this sweeter than the Duhart-Milon tasted alongside it.
