    Expert Ratings Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 90 points Wine Spectator: 88 points Rated: 90 by Stephen Tanzer, May/Jun 08 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Medium red. Very ripe, sweet aromas of plum, mocha and bitter chocolate. Unusually sweet and supple for this wine, with lovely depth and volume to its cassis and chocolate flavors. Very St. Estephe in style. Finishes powerful, sweet and long, with the unusually fine tannins arriving late. An outstanding performance for this chateau.
