    Winemaker's Notes:

    Very deep, dark color. Brilliant. On the nose, very fresh, spicy, empyreumatic (hints of coffee). The attack is powerful and fleshy. On the palate, there is plenty of freshness, beautifully fine and elegant tannins. Really persistent and powerful, reminiscent of the great vintages to keep.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A big, spicy wood-flavored wine, very modern and smooth with its vanilla character. But there’s also some dominant tannin that brings strength and power.

    Poyferré produced a shimmering, polished cabernet in 2006, supple and more harmonious than many in the Médoc. Rich new oak lends the wine opulence and darkens the graphite mineral character of the tannins with an espresso-roast blackness. The fruit has dimension, balanced between plump blueberry and a more restrained vegetal note. Satisfying and delicious as a young wine, this should age with grace.

    Dense ruby/purple, with sweet blackberry and black currant fruit with hints of smoke, espresso roast, and new saddle leather, this is another impressively endowed but tannic, backward style of wine. The concentration, brightness, and depth are all present, but I can't see it being even approachable in less than 5-7 years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

    The Wine Advocate

    Full ruby-red. Ripe aromas of currant, milk chocolate and smoky oak. Lush, sweet and full, with superripe yet backward flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate and minerals. Wonderfully layered, structured wine whose excellent vinosity and firm tannins call for several years of patience.

    International Wine Cellar

    Blackberry, licorice and blueberry aromas lead to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Firm and attractive. Best after 2014.
