91pts Wine Enthusiast
A rich, rounded wine with a dominant, soft, Merlot character. The wine also offers a firm tannic base over which there is a more fruity character and spice and fruit cake flavors on the finish.
90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Loaded with black currant and spring flower characteristics as well as a nice lashing of minerality, this sleeper of the vintage is a medium to full-bodied, luscious St.-Estephe to enjoy now and over the next 10-12 years.
The color is dark red, dense. The nose is very fruity, complex, and discretely woody with beautiful strength. The palate is round, spicy and fresh.
Blend: 50% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot
