This is not a taste by the numbers wine. There is no sensation of heat in this beauty. Aromas of tobacco cigar ash stone blackberry and floral scents pop from the glass with little effort. Mouth coating layers of concentrated dense ripe sweet dark berries powerful tannins and freshness. Rich thick and flavorful with a boatload of tannin this Bordeaux wine will require over a decade of time in the cellar. Pairing high quality style and price this merits serious attention.

This is a 2005 Malescot in the making. And that was stunning. I love the blueberries chocolate and nuts on the nose and palate. The finish lasts for minutes with so much . Goes on and on. I want to drink this! Wow.

A gorgeous fragrance of spring flowers cedarwood black and red currants and hints of spice box and subtle oak is followed by a generously endowed full-bodied opulent wine with layers of concentration a restrained yet exuberant personality superb fruit purity and a long finish. There is plenty of tannin no doubt elevated alcohol and wonderful freshness as well as delicacy. This beauty should drink well for 25 or more years.

Fresh and lively with lots of prominent but silky tannins carrying the mouthwatering plum red currant and black cherry fruit. Rock-solid with great buried acidity and a long vivid finish. -J.M.

(WE92-94 points) Sweet and juicy, a wine that has the potential to be delicious. The tannins are certainly prominent, although with good sweetness. Finally very structured.

Aged in 100% new oak for approximately 14 months. Intense aromas of incense coffee mocha and ripe blackberry rise from the glass. The wine is elegant and medium-bodied and I love the texture and precise concentration. A fair amount of tannins but well balanced this offers serious persistence all the way to the long fresh finish. Try between 2015 and 2025.

Good deep ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry liqueur, flowers and cedary cigar box. A sweet, dense midweight with penetrating red cherry and floral flavors accented by sound acidity. Nothing thick or heavy... Good deep ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry liqueur, flowers and cedary cigar box. A sweet, dense midweight with penetrating red cherry and floral flavors accented by sound acidity. Nothing thick or heavy about this wine but it possesses plenty of chewy depth. Boasts excellent early balance but has the firm, sweet tannins and finishing bite and length for at least a couple decades of positive evolution in bottle.
