Tasting Notes

91 points Robert Parker: "A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is a surprisingly opulent, flamboyant, fleshy, soft crowd-pleaser displaying abundant amounts of smoked herbs, sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, licorice, espresso roast, chocolate, and toast. Full-bodied with superb concentration as well as a beautifully textured mouthfeel, this 2006 should drink well for 10-15+ years. Like all of the Neipperg estates, this wine’s capsule has a clever anti-fraud device, which I think will be increasingly employed by many French estates." (02/09) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Offers plenty of ripe fruit, with toasted bread and blackberry jam. Full-bodied, with soft tannins. There's a solid core tot his. Well done for the vintage. Best after 2014." (03/09) K&L's notes - 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc. At Joanne-very nice upfront fruit. Good mouthful. A touch short. At property-Extremely sweet nose. Some chocolate flavors. Rich and balanced on the palate. *+ Ralph Sands: Very sweet, exotic blueberry and plum fruit, round and super-attractive, a wine even a touch Californian in style, and I love it!
