    May 6, 2016 - Corked.

  • monomonlite Likes this wine: (92 points)

    March 15, 2014 - Beautiful red but still a bit purple, good aroma close to classic Bordeaux, good balance, strong tannin medium-long finish.

    May 15, 2012 - very impressive for the vintage and still going strong.

  • grapejuicedrinker Likes this wine: (91 points)

    October 26, 2011 - This is still in great shape. Very balanced with hints of spice that I did not anticipate. The finish is long and remains smooth.

    June 26, 2011 - Would have expected more of this producer if it wasn't for the vintage. Still tight and tannic, mid-fruit with lots of sediment.
