Made by Michel Rolland, the Merlot-dominated 2011 Pedestal incorporates a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and gives up ripe, full-throttle aromas and flavors of plum liqueur, licorice, smoked herbs and hints of background meatiness to go with a full-bodied, up-front, layered and downright sexy feel in the mouth. Showing good concentration and an already delicious style, enjoy bottles over the coming decade or so. As always, the lineup from Long Shadows is impressive across the board. Their 2011s show surprising richness in the vintage and are certainly standouts. (JD)
Bright red-ruby color. Wild berries and bitter chocolate on the nose, lifted by a floral quality. At once sweet and savory in the mouth, with the dark berry flavors accompanied by subtle notes of wild spices, earth and minerals. This is still quite backward, finishing with ripe, building tannins.
