90Robert M. Parker Jr.

Deep, dark garnet/purple-colored wine with a moderately intense fragrance of minerals, licorice, smoke, roasted herbs, and sweet black currant fruit. The wine still has some tannin to shed, but its expansive, savory style.

90Wine Spectator

Dense, concentrated and nearly chocolatey in richness, with complex aromas of ripe plum, vanilla and herbs. Tight and fully tannic, built for the cellar, although its aromas are tempting now.


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.
