    Critical Acclaim:

    Lively, with good lift and floral aromatics followed by a fresh mix of red cherry, black cherry, red currant and black currant. Nice tarry edge creeps in on the finish.
    Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points

    Wine Spectator

    This is a brooding, dark wine; its tannins are evident, with a complex series of dark, dense flavors. Its fruit is buried under all of its tannic scaffolding.
    Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points

    Opaque purple. Spicy, deeply aromatic nose offers cassis, underbrush, smoked beef and bay leaf. Rich, dense and suave, with coffee liqueur and vibrant chocolate-covered blackberry flavors that carry impressively through a mineral-driven finish. Plenty of lively acidity and smooth tannins suggest a long life ahead. One of the better young Haut Bages Liberals of the last ten years.
    Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points

    International Wine Cellar

    Pretty core of fruit and ripe tannins follow through a medium body with polished tannins and a minerally, fruity and delicate finish.
    Barrel Sample: 89-90 Points
