|Vintage 2010 - Wine Spectator, 89 Points
Offers a roasted feel, with dark bramble, plum and tobacco notes accented by hints of pastis and apple wood, leading to a ganache- and charcoal-infused finish. Distinctive in feel, revealing a prominent yet integrated woodsy element.
Vintage 2010 - 90 Points, International Wine Cellar
Opaque ruby. Smoky cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by olive, allspice and licorice, with a sexy floral quality in the background. Sappy dark berry and lavender pastille flavors display impressive depth and power without excess weight. Closes sweet, gently tannic and long, with lingering spice and floral pastille notes.
