96Wine Enthusiast

This opulent wine is as bold with its fruit as with its tannins... Blackberry flavors, acidity and intense richness are coming together in a welter of ripe fruits.

95James Suckling

Blackcurrants, tobacco, graphite, cloves and dried leaves on the nose...medium-to full-bodied with firm, tightly knit tannins. Structured and compact with a long, mineral finish.

94+ The Wine Advocate

...very pure, beautifully delineated nose of crushed blackcurrants, fresh black plums and boysenberries with hints of wild thyme, damp soil, tar and black olives...medium to full-bodied palate offers taut, muscular black fruit with loads of savory layers and a firm, grainy texture, finishing long and mineral tinged.

93Wine Spectator

...lovely stream of violet and cassis aromas and flavors that are sleek and pure in feel, picking up dark cherry, iron and sanguine details along the way.

93Jeb Dunnuck

...ripe, sexy, full-bodied Pauillac that brings plenty of richness while still staying reasonably elegant. Blackcurrants, blackberries, smoked earth, new leather, and cedary herbs all flow to an impressively endowed, layered Pauillac with chewy tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish.

92Vinous / IWC

...bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, light cassis and iodine aromas...palate is medium-bodied with graphite-infused black fruit...pencil-lead-tinged, quite sinewy finish lingers wonderfully.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Light, fresh and zippy. Compact and undramatic with just a hint of something green on the palate.


France, Bordeaux, Pauillac

Pauillac is Bordeaux’s most famous appellation, thanks to the fact that it is home to three of the region’s fabled first-growth châteaux, Lafite-Rothschild, Mouton-Rothschild and Latour. Perched on the left bank of the Gironde River north of the city of Bordeaux, Pauillac is centered around the commune of Pauillac and includes about 3,000 acres of vineyards. The Bordeaux classification of 1855 named 18 classified growths, including the three above mentioned First Growths. Cabernet Sauvignon is the principal grape grown, followed by Merlot. The soil is mostly sandy gravel mixed with marl and iron. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “the textbook Pauillac would tend to have a rich, full-bodied texture, a distinctive bouquet of black currants, licorice and cedary scents, and excellent aging potential.”
