Surprisingly evolved and complex already, this wine is even more powerful than the 2010. Reaching 14.5% natural alcohol, the vines were cropped at an astonishingly low 20 hectoliters per hectare. A final blend of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, this wine is dense and rich, with a dark purple color, loads of creosote, camphor, black raspberry and blueberry fruit, as well as hints of sweet cherry and toasty oak. Lush, pure, full-bodied and intense, this is a stunning sleeper of the vintage, much like the 2010. It is capable of lasting at least a decade.

Dark and lush, with exotic fig paste, blackberry preserve and plum sauce flavors that are rounded, with extra pudding and milk chocolate notes. Shows more power than purity on the overtly toasty finish, without the drive of the top examples. Best from 2013 through 2017. 1,666 cases made.

89 points, Wine Spectator (Mar 2011)

Fresh red-ruby color. Cassis, blackberry, plum and a whiff of herbs on the nose. Lush, moderately sweet and fine-grained; at once round and vinous thanks to harmonious acidity. Hints of spices and vanilla on the aftertaste, with broad tannins that spread out to coat the palate.
