The final blend was 89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, and the wine tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Its opaque blue/purple, nearly black color is followed by aromas of blueberry liqueur interwoven with black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, camphor and forest floor. Among the most complete wines of the vintage, with no hollowness, astringency or herbaceousness, this is a tour de force in a challenging vintage. Some tannins are noticeable, but this 2011 is already approachable and should provide delicious, complex drinking over the next two decades. Bravo! - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

A gorgeous red offering ganache and fig notes melded nicely together with ample heft but good freshness with a long dark richly layered finish. This goes for power-and pulls it off.-J.M.

Mint and new wood aromas lead to a palate that has dark and concentrated tannins. The wine is bright and fresh with juicy black-currant and plum flavors.

This is a muscular wine for the vintage with loads of fruit and tannins, not to mention the new wood. Full body, chewy and intense. Lots of minerals, sweet tobacco and berries. Needs a least three to four years to soften... This is a muscular wine for the vintage with loads of fruit and tannins, not to mention the new wood. Full body, chewy and intense. Lots of minerals, sweet tobacco and berries. Needs a least three to four years to soften. A big, muscular 2011. 85% merlot, 10% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc.

Soils are clay and limestone with some flint. Opaque purple color. Mildly intense pepper and spice aromas with ripe black cherry fruit notes in the background. The intense fruit carries onto the palate where nicely proportioned flavors show liqueur-like texture that still maintain tension and grace. The wine shows great length on the finish. Incredibly complex with some of this estate's classic minerality underneath and fine-grained balanced tannins .Tasted three times. Enjoy 2017-2030.
