Tasting Notes

89 points Robert Parker: "A sleeper of the vintage, this constant over-achiever’s 2007 exhibits notes of plum sauce, soy, spice box, and unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco. This round, generous sleeper of the vintage shows good density, medium to full body, and a silky, smooth style. Drink it over the next 7-8 years." (04/10) According to the Wine Spectator: "Fresh herb and berry aromas lead to a medium body, with fine tannins and a medium fruity finish. Chewy now. A little bottle age will take away some of the rusticity. Drink now." (03/10) 89 points Stephen Tanzer: "Full medium ruby. Wild if subdued aromas of black cherry, dark chocolate, licorice, game and leather. Juicy and intense but a bit youthfully bound-up, with fresh acidity perking up the concentrated, chewy mid-palate. A bit extractive but plenty rich for the year, and not green. The wine's building tannins call for a few years of patience." (Jul/Aug 10) K&L's notes - Tasted at property. Ripe and rich. Black licorice flavors. Deep color. A touch short.

    Both of the Pessac wines were a hit (the other was the 2005 Haut Vigneau). The Haut-Bergey’s nose was dominated by blackberry and cedar, but on the palate these elements were backed by tobacco, dried herbs and spice, all around a supple mouthfeel. The blackberry finish also showed more herbal notes.
