  • Concur with PURSLANE on this wine. No way is it 88-89 points. Every bit 93. Purple/ruby color and slight brick on the edge. Cacophony of aromas and flavors. Add licorice to what PURSLANE had for flavors. All aspects in harmony. Nice long finish. Unfortunately my last one...

  • Parker upped his score on this wine after tasting it bottled to 93. Tasting this 15 years old, that raised score proved to be fully justified. Impressively dark color with only a narrow brick around the edge giving away its age. The nose is complex, savory, and captivating, with violets, black plum, black cherry, and forest floor. The first sip is rich and concentrated, and gear shifts right up into blackberry. Then strong acidity and firm tannins grip the mouth, leaving the finish very dry. Wait 3 to 5 more years for the acidity and tannins to soften and round and the delicious fruit to persist through the finish, in order to enjoy this wonderful Bordeaux at its peak.

  • Dark purple colour with earthy nose and intense palate. Blackberry and dark fruit on the palate, a powerful wine for 15 years of aging and might need some more time.

  • Nose of black cherry and blackberry with a touch of earth, more of the same on the palate, at its peak, suggest you drink now, medium body, and lovely, long finish.

  • Lots of chocolate, smoke, dark charred oak, barnyard, espresso grounds, menthol. Tastes like the product of a hot year. Modern in character with roasted, dark fruit but lacking concentration. Drinking well, I don't think there is any hurry to drink these. May even be on the upswing. A solid wine for a good price (on release).
