(BH91-94 points) An intensely floral nose is notably ripe with notes of plum, spice, black raspberry and cassis in evidence. There is a seductive texture to the solidly well-concentrated medium weight plus flavors that benefit from plenty of structure-buffering dry extract such that this seems more forward than it really is. The tannins are dense but fine and this should significantly reward 12 to 15 years of cellaring.

Wine Spectator, March 2014
A polished red, featuring notes of violet, black cherry, toasty oak, baking spices and mineral. Dense and well-integrated, but remains elegant, with a long aftertaste of fruit and spice. Best from 2016 through 2027. 60... A polished red, featuring notes of violet, black cherry, toasty oak, baking spices and mineral.

This 2011 is a big, bold and fruity wine that shows red fruits, a sweet texture and good acidity. It's powerful and dark, jammy as well as structured. The wood flavors are still showing strongly and need to soften. Drink from 2019.

Stephen Tanzer's IWC, March 2014
Good medium red. Redcurrant and smoky oak on the nose, with darker fruits and flowers emerging with air.

Redcurrant and smoky oak on the nose, with darker fruits and flowers emerging with air. A sweet, lightly saline midweight, with intense berry, mint and mineral flavors showing lovely inner-mouth lift. Finishes classically dry and still a bit youthfully clenched, with a sound acid/tannin backbone to support aging.
