Wine Advocate 89 points - This classically-styled claret did not merit an outstanding rating because it lacks sufficient concentration to compete with the estate?s top vintages. However, it offers a dark ruby/plum color, nicely evolved notes of roasted herbs, sweet cherries and currants, and loamy earth, medium-weight, light to moderate tannin, and an elegant style. If it puts on weight over the next few years, it may deserve a slightly higher score. Anticipated maturity: now-2018.  (Jun 2007)

Wine Spectator 90 points - Intense aromas of currant bush and berries that turn to roses. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a floral, leafy and fruity aftertaste. Builds on the palate. Needs time. Best after 2011. 17,500 cases made. –JS (Mar 31 2007)
