Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
" Most consumers outside of Bordeaux are probably far more familiar with the brilliant white wine made here than their red, but this is an elegant, Burgundianstyled red that could pass for a grand cru from the Cotes de Beaune. Sweet and sour cherry notes intermixed with notions of new saddle leather, burning embers, and tobacco leaf emerge from the complex aromatics. This dark ruby/purpletinged, mediumbodied 2006 is not a blockbuster, but a wine of considerable grace, finesse, and elegance. Drink it over the next 1215+ years. February 2009 88 points Wine Spectator Aromas of dried flowers and dried cherry. Medium to fullbodied, with lovely berry fruit and strawberry, with balanced tannins and an attractive finish. Not a big wine, but very delicious already. Best after 2011. JS,March 2009"
