Very aromatic, showing blackberry and currant aromas, with some licorice. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a rich, decadent, fruity finish. Caresses the palate. Stylish and opulent. Best after 2011... Wine Spectator

Still far too young. Earth and graphite. Tomato leaf. Burly tannin. I have one more and will let it sleep for a decade.

Hauntingly good - could use more time to sleep but a very nice (surprisingly) fruity Bordeaux - well structured, mature body that will get even better with age. As it is now: bold, yet easy to drink with a tobacco ish finish.

Underripe blackberries, prunes, bittersweet chocolate, dark earth, not showing a lot of oak; balance towards earth & minerality; beautiful & delicious! - 2005

Super pretty, black and silky. Lead pencil, mineral and lots of fruit. Really nice.
