"A deep, rich color presages the intense aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, rasberries and black cherries. An almost sweet fruit character and a super-long finish add up to a blockbuster of a wine. Aerate at least one hour in advance, or cellar for seven to ten years. Great with provençal-style stews." Best 2005-2011

90 points "...a tightly knit, heady, rich, medium to full-bodied, deep purple-colored offering with a gorgeous bouquet of creosote, creme de cassis, and black currants. Displaying loads of intensity as well as power, it needs 1-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 10-12 years" Best 2004-2014

4 stars "from old vines. Intense peppery nose. On the palate, tight tannins with oaky aromas. Very long finish. Very promising but still need to age."
