Fresh, bold and new...this was leaving the things I thought I loved about CdP, but made me consider a different style of CdP. fruit considerate, acidity present, body controlled CdP is not the norm, but it is most enjoyable!! — 9 years ago
This wine is in its prime. Silky smooth tannins, rich mocha, black plum and baking spices. Very well developed with moderate acidity. The balance is truly incredible. An amazing farewell to NAPA Tony!!! Exceptionally done and it is aging beautifully! — 4 years ago
A great example of the power and control that St. Emilion can produce. This bottle was drinking beautifully and was singing its vintage. Fruit and earth were balanced with tannins that were strong, but not dominating with a round freshness that was surprising and pleasant. — 9 years ago
