JS94
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
The aromas of sweet tobacco and ripe fruit are so attractive. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Long finish. A pretty and delicious wine already. Best in 2015.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, February 2012
A well-structured version, with a spine of charcoal and graphite supporting the dark, fleshy blackberry, fig paste and mulled black currant fruit. Offers a racy edge, with flickers of anise and incense on the finish...

Offers a racy edge, with flickers of anise and incense on the finish. Shows lovely mouthfeel as this expands in the glass. Best from 2013 through 2025.-J.M.

85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. Translucent ruby core with a bright rose rim. Sweet plum, crunchy raspberry, and wild strawberry overlaying notes of coffee grounds, cocoa powder, and focused minerality. Medium-bodied... 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. Translucent ruby core with a bright rose rim. Sweet plum, crunchy raspberry, and wild strawberry overlaying notes of coffee grounds, cocoa powder, and focused minerality. Medium-bodied, with baking spice, light hints of smoke, underbrush, and surprisingly well-integrated tannins. The finish is driven by notes of stony minerality. Enjoy now after a decant, though it will continue to evolve over the next 7-9 years.

Eddie Wolowski - JJ Buckley, July 2011
Deep garnet core with a magenta rim. The nose is floral, with elegant notes of raspberry, rose, cherry and clove, which continue onto the palate. With ethereal texture and delicate structure, this stretches out with air... Deep garnet core with a magenta rim. The nose is floral, with elegant notes of raspberry, rose, cherry and clove, which continue onto the palate. With ethereal texture and delicate structure, this stretches out with air, enabling the gentle tannins to caress over a long, lingering finish. This is a wine for those who prefer old-world finesse. While approachable today, this will continue to evolve over the next decade.
