Tasting Notes

90 points Robert Parker: "Thank goodness this estate’s new consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt, has toned down what was often too much new oak. He also appears to have built in more density. The 2005 is a beautifully exuberant, sexy wine displaying copious black cherry, toasty oak, raspberry, and vanillin notes. Pure, rich, medium to full-bodied, and luscious, patience will not be required for this beauty as it can be consumed now and over the next 12-15 years." (04/08) 89 points Stephen Tanzer: "Medium red. Superripe aromas of maraschino cherry and smoke. At once sweet and firm, with flavors of cherry, licorice and minerals. A bit youthfully medicinal, and very successful for this property." (May/June 08) And from the Wine Spectator: "Displays aromas of blackberry and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. There's a hint of toasty oak. Best after 2011." (03/08)
