...there's fantastic depth and complexity. The wine is rich, profound, a star even in its Rutherford stable of thoroughbreds. It has enormous power and authority, with finely ground, sweet tannins.
Supple and harmonious, with rich, fleshy blackberry, black cherry, plum and currant fruit that's tight and concentrated. A hint of mocha, herb and cedar add a wonderful dimension.
...gorgeously rich and full-bodied revealing black raspberry, cedar, cassis, and spice box characteristics as well as high quality, well-integrated, toasty oak.
...Very exciting, complex notes on the nose. Lively as well as opulent. Both rich and refreshing. Lots of energy. Pretty promising! Masses of tannin but it’s ripe tannin. Good and vital. Long...Very youthful!
