Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The inky/purple-colored 2011, a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, offers loads of cassis, blueberry and raspberry fruit along with a chalky minerality. It is a full-bodied, dense, long wine built like an NFL middle linebacker. Filled with power, intensity, texture and richness, it will handsomely pay dividends over the next two decades.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points

JS 92
James Suckling

I like the blueberry and blackberry character with minerals and hints of oak. Full and velvety. Well made and very polished for the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 91-92 Points

Wine Enthusiast

Big and serious, with a well-balanced wood and spice character. The tense tannins provide a nervy, tight counterpoint.
Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Bright, pale yellow. Pure, vibrant grapefruit aroma sexed up by nuances of green fig, gooseberry and hazelnut. Densely packed and pure, with lovely fresh acidity framing the flavors of underripe winter melon and citrus peel. Boasts very good density and fullness, and finishes tactile and long. Not the most complex dry white wine of 2011, but should offer considerable early-drinking appeal.
Range: 88-91
