Not surprisingly, this inky bluish purple wine is frighteningly concentrated, with high extract, spicy oak, loads of blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, a hint of underlying liquid chalk/minerality, and a monster finish. The wine has plenty of tannins, which are largely concealed by the luxurious and extravagant nature of the wine’s concentration. I wouldn’t say this is a wine for those with 19th century palates, but the 2012 can hopefully be drunk in about 7-8 years, and will surely last for three decades or more, making it essentially one of the longest-lived wines of this vintage. From a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, this wine boasts 15% natural alcohol. - Robert Parker

(JS90-91 points) I like the vibrant fruit in this as well as polished and integrated tannins. Medium-to-full body, fine tannins. We will see what is better -- 2011 or 2012?
