"This chalky, earthy wine appears to be more narrowly constructed than I remember from barrel. Medium-bodied with crisp black cherry fruit, a whiff of bay leaf, and unsmoked cigar tobacco, it is a crisp, moderately tannic wine that will benefit from time in the cellar. Consume it during its first 1-15 years of life." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/26/2010, Issue 188), Ratings: 88
