Dense and sweet, with the wine's strong floral quality giving the middle palate a light touch. Blueberry and blackberry flavors are nicely framed by lively acidity. A cabernet sauvignon for pinot lovers. The pH here is 3.9 but this wine hardly lacks for vibrancy. -- Stephen Tanzer

Sadly, there are only 101 cases of this fabulous wine. Aromas of lead pencil shavings, chocolate-infused espresso, crème de cassis and blackberries along with some barrique smells emerge from this full-bodied, dramatic, flamboyant 2012. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. - RP

Coffee, toffee and subtle Asian and cinnamon spice keep the proceedings lively, for this is a seriously ripe and playful wine. Cellar through 2020. VIRGINIE BOONE

Drink now through 2028. 100 cases made. — JL
