On the palate the wine is deep and brooding, with great structure and depth of flavor. The wine has concentrated yet supple tannins, good fruit and acidity and a persistent finish, contributing to a finely balanced wine consistent with the classic Bordeaux style of our prior releases. This vintage shows great potential and promises to be long lived.
4 stars, Highly Recommended, Decanter Magazine (February 2011): “Voluptuous pepper, cassis, lavender and oak nose. Opulent and creamy, full-bodied Cabernet with freshness, grainy tannins and a finish of mocha and mint. Not yet knit but has potential. Drink 2011-18.”
90 points, Wine Enthusiast “…gigantic and somewhat sweet fruit, in the form of blackberry, cherry and raspberry jam…could be one for the long haul.”
