"Some lively berry on the nose, with hints of cream. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. Best after 2008. –JS" (WS)

"Notes of raspberries, crushed rocks, and spring flowers are found in this medium-bodied, structured, tannic wine along with admirable purity, depth, and texture. Consume it over the next 10-15 years. " (WA)

"Deep ruby-red. Black raspberry, blueberry and sweet oak aromas. Silky-sweet and penetrating, with lovely mineral lift to the black fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. This has terrific structure for Canon-Fronsac, thanks to its firm minerality. Another superb example of the vintage." (VM)
