93James Suckling

...ultra-fine textured red with mint, stone and blackberry aromas and flavors. Full body, fresh and bright. Extremely long finish.

92Wine Enthusiast

Underneath those tannins are solid, chunky fruits and a great generosity and richness.

91Wine Spectator

...lovely, supple, elegant feel, with a sandalwood and incense frame around a core of warmed plum and cherry paste flavors. Lightly dusty through the finish, with a lingering mineral hint. A pretty wine, with the balance to hold right here for a bit.

****Decanter Magazine (stars)

Firm balanced fruit on nose. Soft entry. Oak dominant but still attractive, sweet wine.


France, Bordeaux, St.-Estephe

Saint-Estèphe is in the northern Médoc, on the left bank of the Gironde River. Although it has no First Growth estates, its five Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Growth châteaux are notable, and, in recent decades, have become favorites with reviewers and consumers. Some reviewers also note that the appellation is today making excellent Cru Bourgeois wines, which frequently offer good value. There are 3,404 acres of vineyards and a variety of soil types, from gravelly soil to soil with significant sand or clay. The two Second Growth Châteaux in St.-Estephe are Cos d’Estournel and Montrose. The Third Growth Calon-Ségur is widely admired. The principal grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
