From the Critics:
- "A strong success, the 2003 offers a fragrant bouquet of black cherry jam, cedar, and toasty vanilla, a beautiful texture, and considerable persistence on the palate. The final blend included 27% Petit Verdot, which is rather remarkable. Perhaps that explains the freshness in this wine from the southern Medoc. Drink it over the next 7-8 years." (April '06) -
- Ruby-red color. Slightly reduced aromas of black cherry, blackberry and spices hint at a chocolatey ripeness. A supple, sweet midweight, with enticing dark berry, game and licorice flavors. Initially seemed rather suave and fine-grained, but turned a bit heavy in the glass, ultimately displaying a strong chocolatey character. (May/June '04) -
