"Ripe and brambly, with a very solid core of red and black currant fruit mashed with spice, tobacco and roasted cocoa hints. The long finish lets iron, cocoa and spice play out nicely, with ample flesh. Drink now through 2016. "

"Full bodied and lush, with hints on sweet, smoky oak layered over espresso, black olive and sour plum. With faint suggestions of dried fruit and chocolate yet ample freshness on the finish, this seems a bit disjointed at the moment; drink 20162024."

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"Dark purple. Exotic, heady aromas of mulberry, blackcurrant, apricot, licorice and violet, with a suggestion of smokiness. Sweet and juicy but tight, with pliant dark berry compote and cherry qualities, peppery spices and a late note of black olive. The finish features finegrained tannins and very good clarity. All the fruit for this wine comes from Chaillot."
