Item no. 116406
Firm and complex, it shows both ripe fruit and weighty tannins, and is still very closed and tight. This is a powerful expression of the vintage—a wine that should age well.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points
This sexy, delicious effort is atypically fat, fleshy and opulent for a 2011. While the acidity is present, it is lower than in many Medocs. The wine displays lots of blue, red and black fruits intertwined with a floral note that provides additional complexity. Front end-loaded with a mid-palate and finish that fill out nicely, this beautifully made wine is a true sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 15+ years.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points
Clean and direct in profile, with polished blackberry and black currant fruit melded with a chocolate note. Stays polished through the finish, if a touch light.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points
Blueberry and spices on the nose. Full to medium body, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Lacks a tiny bit of a center palate.
Barrel Sample: 89-90 Points
