One can't say enough about this winery, which may still fly under the radar of most consumers. The fully mature 2000 displays gorgeous aromas of camphor, lead pencil shavings, unsmoked tobacco, plums, and black currants. With full body, a velvety texture, and beautiful weight, richness, and length, this superb wine should evolve, possibly improve for another 15 years. It's a beauty! Robert Parker

Surprisingly deep and still nearly purple colt; complex aromas remind me of cigar box and black berry fruits; still young and buoyant on the palate with vibrant fruit and fully integrated tannins. Delicious!

Charcoal, green pepper, cedar shavings, pepper spice, and red currents. Textbook aromas, and flavors. More tart than one might expect from this vintage.

Not great but solid. Pencil lead, mushrooms, earth, with a nice dark fruit streak behind it all.
