Intense black-red, solid concentration of blackcurrant Cabernet fruit, lots of extraction but not heavy, impressive fruit on the palate, ripe, good depth, potentially complex and very good medium term. Drink 2012-17. 4 stars. Score: 17 Decanter Magazine,
Blackish crimson. Dense, minerally, rather distinctively intense aromas. Very thick and sweet and dense. All stops pulled out here and the tannin quality is nice. Not too flabby. Well done. More powerful than most but still with a good texture. Lots of work and thought seems to have gone into this. Real progress. Score: 17+ Jancis Robinson MW,
This has another one of those very Burgundian nose with some black cherries, cedar and well-integrated vanillary new oak. Very good delineation. The palate has a lot of fruit concentration but it is rather smothered in oak at the moment. Perhaps a little overdone? It lacks a little freshness and tension on the finish. Tasted April 2008 Score: 87-89 Neal Martin,
Full ruby-red. Cassis, licorice and minerals on the nose, with some oaky torrefaction notes of espresso and mocha; this smells ripe. Good intensity and brightness to the black fruit and smoky oak flavors. A firm spine of acidity gives this a serious backbone and a slightly spiky impression early on. Finishes horizontal and persistent, with building tannins. In a modern, somewhat extractive style, but this has good energy and grip. Score: 88-90 Stephen Tanzer, Intl. Wine Cellar
