  • International Wine Cellar
    Rating: 91-93 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 96, May/June 2001. Full ruby-red. Cool, brooding aromas of blackberry liqueur, violet, smoke and minerals. Concentrated, densely packed, minerally and precise; brisk acids contribute to the impression of coolness. Firm, youthfully austere finish. Not as lush or open today as the Lafleur, but this is longer on the aftertaste. I'm not sure I would have picked this blind as a '99.
  • Decanter
    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Subtle and close-grained, its dark plum fruit is riven with violet and liquorice, subsiding slowly amidst sturdy though fine-grained tannins.
