Deep in color, this well priced St. Emilion offers fresh coffee, licorice, chocolate, black cherry jam and earth. Soft, round, open and already fun to taste.

Ratings

James Suckling 92 pts - Very opulent and rich with loads of fruit and spice. Walnut and chocolate. Full and chewy. Exciting.

Robert Parker 91 pts - A major sleeper of the vintage, this over-achieving St.-Emilion seems to come up big in many of the top vintages and needs more recognition from consumers. Loads of black currants, toasty oak and forest floor notes comprise this large-scaled, substantial wine. With its intense fruit, copius glycerin, and long, complete finish, this wine is successful now but should be better in 3-4 years and last for 15 or more.
