Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2012
Ripe and dense, this delicious red offers a lovely creamy mouthfeel to its crushed plum, blackberry and anise flavors, carried by long, velvety tannins. Lovely spice and toasty apple wood notes flitter in the background... Ripe and dense, this delicious red offers a lovely creamy mouthfeel to its crushed plum, blackberry and anise flavors, carried by long, velvety tannins. Lovely spice and toasty apple wood notes flitter in the background. The best vintage yet for this rising new estate. Drink now through 2015. 4,000 cases made.

Another sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from consultant Stephane Derenoncourt displays plenty of melted chocolate, espresso roast, sweet berries and black fruits. It is ripe, fat... Another sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from consultant Stephane Derenoncourt displays plenty of melted chocolate, espresso roast, sweet berries and black fruits. It is ripe, fat, succulent, dense ruby/purple, and a totally hedonistic and delicious Bordeaux to drink over the next 3-4 years. The natural alcohol level of the 4,000 cases produced is 14.7%.
