Well-structured on the palate with nicely layered complexity. Ripe chewy tannins that still needs a bit of time to integrate. Attractive wine with outstanding potential. Drink from 2016.

A blend of 50% Merlot 30% Cabernet Franc and just under 20% Cabernet Sauvignon the de Pressac 2010 has a clean nose with blackberry macerated dark cherries and a slight brine accent. Moderate rather than spectacular delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with dense tannins good acidity here with a sense of symmetry and focus on the finish. This is well crafted and comes highly recommended.

A creamy, flattering style, with layers of warm boysenberry confiture, linzer torte and melted black licorice all melded nicely and framed by dark but integrated cocoa and singed mesquite notes. There's a grippy edge through the finish, with an echo of incense that should emerge more with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2023. – JM

Nicely textured, this relatively exuberant, medium to full-bodied wine has plenty of red and black fruits, some high-quality subtle oak in the background, and touches of licorice and Christmas fruitcake. It is deep, round, very pure and well-balanced. It should drink nicely for 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Very dark purple. Mellow and quite evolved. Simpler and more open than most but a solid sincere effort.
