    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pronounce purple in color, with an intense nose of black fruits such as casis and blackberry. In the mouth the structural balance bewtween the tanins and alcohol is perfect, with a smooth feeling. The length in the mouth is interesting and racy, with an explosion of coffee, vanilla, and cashew nut, also with black and red fruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Offers blackberry and black licorice on the nose, turning to light jam. Full-bodied, with lovely, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Beautiful and refined. Best after 2012.

    As I wrote last year, this sensational sleeper of the vintage is not far off the pace of Gloria's brilliant 2005. Sweet cedary, cigar box, roasted herb, and black currant fruit aromas are followed by a lush, full-bodied, textured, concentrated wine. A steal in today’s marketplace, this is a gorgeous St.-Julien to enjoy now and over the next 15+ years. Good value.
