JS 91
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
A wine with lovely plum blueberry chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. Full body and a velvety finish. Soft and delicious now. Better in 2015.

Dark and rich but pure and polished with a subtle bittersweet cocoa frame to the dark cherry cassis and plum notes inlaid with tar and violet. Stays sleek through the finish. Has some grip but is accessible now. Merlot... Dark and rich but pure and polished with a subtle bittersweet cocoa frame to the dark cherry cassis and plum notes inlaid with tar and violet.

Dark opaque ruby from core to rim. Quintessential Graves with aromas of pulverized rocks French vanilla ripe plum sea air black cherry cassis with a hint of tar.

Quintessential Graves with aromas of pulverized rocks French vanilla ripe plum sea air black cherry cassis with a hint of tar. Pure and focused on the palate with deep black and red fruit flavors intermingling with spice. A bit of grip near the finish where it turns tarry and chocolaty this is drinking beautifully now but will gain complexity with 2-3 years of bottle age. This has an immediate sense of place and will prove a formidable companion to the historic 2009 Smith Haut Lafitte. Enjoy 2013-2020.
