91 points Robert Parker: "...it is an impressive blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc displaying a deep, dark ruby color as well as a striking bouquet of powdered rocks/minerals, sweet cherry and plum-like fruit, and hints of Christmas fruitcake and spice box. It is an elegant, medium-bodied, moderately tannic, pure effort possessing outstanding density. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15-20 years." (02/09) 91 points Tanzer: "Bright red-ruby. Soil-driven aromas of blueberry, licorice, minerals, dark chocolate and iron. Juicy, spicy and penetrating, with a lovely light touch to the flavors of black fruits, spices, mocha, minerals and flowers. An elegant, aromatic, very sexy wine with terrific energy and lift from calcaire I love the suave texture on display here. Finishes very long and perfumed, with firm but perfectly buffered tannins and lingering notes of red berries and minerals." 90 points Wine Spectator: "Raspberry, mineral and berry aromas follow through to a medium-to-full-bodied palate, with good fruit and a light toasty vanilla aftertaste. Subtle and refined. Best from 2012 through 2016. " (03/09) K&L's notes - Fruit and structure. Sweet and lovely and a bit of tannin at back. Delicious. Solid wine. Restrained and long. *1/2 Ralph Sands: Wow, is this place on a roll. High-toned ripe fruit, very dark and balanced. Good overall harmony from the big wine. Like it! On 01/23/09: one for the cellar-power and richness personified!
