Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Tight with hints of mesquite and tar showing good racy tobacco leaf and cassis notes. Tasted non-blind. -J.M.

While certainly powered by tannins this wine does have a rich fruity character as well. The finish brings juicy flavors that cut right through the tannins. -R.V.

A firm and fruity wine with plums and minerals and chocolate. Full and chewy yet polished and fine. Fresh finish. A little lean and rigid. 68.7% Merlot 11.6% Cabernet Franc and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2011 has a very fragrant high-toned nose of pure cassis. Round clean and polished on the palate even at this early stage this has attractive flavors of gravelly minerals fresh blueberry and black tea. Very taut this finishes with massive chunky tannins that will need some time to resolve before this wine can become truly enjoyable. Drink 2016-2022.
