"Blackberry with toasted oak and coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Lovely texture to this wine. Dense and refined. Very tight right now. One of the best I have tasted from this estate. Best after 2009. 20,000 cases made. –JS" (WS)

"A spectacular wine, and one that could have been bought for a song when it was released, this blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. Strutting all of its nobility, richness and majesty in 2014, it boasts abundant notes of cedarwood, creme de cassis, licorice and a hint of lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich, dense and fully mature, it is capable of lasting another 7-10 years. This beauty is a big-time sleeper of the vintage." (WA)

"(a 73/27 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Bright ruby-red. Blackcurrant, blueberry, black cherry, violet, tobacco, fresh herbs and currant leaf on the slightly medicinal, quintessential cabernet nose. Then broad, fat and rich, with a layered texture and enticing sweetness. Showing its cabernet side today, but this is thoroughly ripe, seamless cabernet." (VM)

"Spicy and gamey, but rich and wonderful on the nose. Full bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a long, sweet tobacco and ripe fruit aftertaste. Decadent and yummy right now, but needs another four or five years. Find the wine. " (JS)

"Under the control of the winemaking team of Lafite, this estate is on a roll. This is a beautifully balanced wine, with complexity, richness and cassis, figs and black plums. It is developing relatively quickly, and will be ready to drink in two to three years. Imported by Diageo Chateau & Estates." (WE)

"Light in color with noticeable bricking , scents of cigar box, forest floor and dark berries are easy to find. Medium bodied, with no tannin remaining, the wine is drinking at full maturity. 90 points - Tasted Dec 18, 2013" (JL)
