VinousBright red ruby with purple tinges. Sexy, floral aromas of raspberry, pepper, licorice and spices are vibrant and precise. Juicy, intense and very smooth, with wonderful energy and precision to the flavors of blackberry, licorice and spices. Very nicely balanced, persistent wine with fine tannins and very good grip--and no green or harsh edges. This excellent wine gets my nod for Haut-Medoc of the vintage in 2012. In fact, I was so smitten that I went out of my way to taste it three different times, just to be sure.
Wine SpectatorSupple and friendly, with plum and cassis fruit imparting a caressing feel while lightly singed vanilla accents guide the finish.
Wine Enthusiast87-89. Barrel sample. This is a fruity, lightweight wine that is very juicy and soft. It's attractively bright and fresh with an open character.
