94Wine Spectator

...whiff of mocha curls around the plum, blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors, while ganache, roasted apple wood and graphite details course through the finish. Shows lots of range and depth.

94James Suckling

Juicy, soft and velvety on the palate with plenty of brambleberry character. Full body. Round, creamy tannins and flavorful finish.

94Jeb Dunnuck

...medium to full-bodied notes of black cherry and cassis fruits, toasted spice, spring flowers, and damp earth...wonderful fruit, plenty of tannins, and a great finish.

93Wine Enthusiast

...dense, opulent wine...generous and open, with great dark fruits and integrated tannins...

91The Wine Advocate

...very serious, classic notes of plum preserves, mulberries and baked black cherries with hints of tilled soil, cloves, cedar chest and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has firm, grippy tannins and plenty of muscular fruit, finishing on a stewed tea note.

16+ Jancis Robinson

On the nose, highly toasted oak currently dominates the aromatic profile. Underneath, blueberry and red-cherry fruit...finish is long...


France, Bordeaux, Pomerol

Pomerol is the smallest of Bordeaux’s red wine producing regions, with only about 2,000 acres of vineyards. Located on the east side of the Dordogne River, it is one of the so-called “right bank” appellations and therefore planted primarily to Merlot. Pomerol is unique in Bordeaux in that it is the only district never to have been rated in a classification system. Some historians think Pomerol’s location on the right bank made it unattractive to Bordeaux-based wine traders, who had plenty of wine from Medoc and Graves to export to England and northern Europe. Since ranking estates was essentially a marketing ploy to help brokers sell wine, ranking an area where they did little business held no interest for them. Pomerol didn’t get much attention from the international wine community until the 1960s, when Jean-Pierre Moueix, an entrepreneurial wine merchant, started buying some of Pomerol’s best estates and exporting the wines. Today the influential Moueix family owns Pomerol’s most famous estate, Château Pétrus, along with numerous other Pomerol estates. Pomerol wines, primarily Merlot blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, are considered softer and less tannic than left bank Bordeaux.
