"(from vines between 30 and 50 years of age; vinified with 25% whole clusters and aging in 30% new oak): Very pure aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry and licorice lifted by a violet topnote. Quite ripe and intense, with captivating high-toned lift to its dense flavors of purple and black fruits, spices and violet. More pliant in the early going than the Pommard but also displays lovely delineation. Finishes persistent and suavely tannic." (VM)

"Ripe notes of earth and violets add breath to the cassis and plum aromas that are trimmed in a touch of menthol. There is excellent volume to the very rich and round middle weight plus flavors that possess a velvety mouthfeel on the focused and impressively long if slightly rustic and youthfully austere finish." (BH)
