Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2012
Dark and structured this is a firm wine. It has a smoky wood character powerful tannins over intensely ripe fruit. Acidity and sweetness balance to give a dense wine powered with richness and destined to age for many years.

The finest Giscours in my professional career (I said the same thing from barrel) this dense purple wine has a stunning nose of burning embers charcoal creme de cassis new saddle leather and damp forest floor notes. It is full-bodied with exceptionally sweet well-integrated tannins and a multi-dimensional almost skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish. With its low acidity and remarkable substance and depth this gorgeous wine should age beautifully for 20-30 years.

This is alluring with lots of incense warm espresso and roasted mesquite notes leading the way for a sleek core of mouthwatering black currant and blackberry fruit. The long finish lets the mesquite edge linger with well-embedded grip. Rock-solid. Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2029. Tasted twice with consistent notes. -JM

Good dark red. Blackberry licorice leather chocolate and a whiff of peat on the nose. Intensely flavored fine-grained and lively with noteworthy energy to its dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. A firmly built wine... Good dark red. Blackberry licorice leather chocolate and a whiff of peat on the nose. Intensely flavored fine-grained and lively with noteworthy energy to its dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. A firmly built wine in a rather cool style for the year finishing with chocolatey tannins a lightly herbal quality and very good length. Very well done.

Chocolaty and decidedly modern on the nose with supple black fruits and high tones dark red fruits. Forest raspberry ripe cherry and all spice complement aromas of dusty cocoa and vanilla bean. The palate is dry with oak complementing an array of dark red fruits. The finish is long with well integrated tannins and subtle oak undertones.
