Wine SpectatorRich and ripe, displaying plum, black cherry, mineral and spice notes. Dense and muscular, this is harmonious, lingering with hints of licorice and leather.

Wine EnthusiastRipe dark-skinned fruit, blue flower, graphite and exotic spice aromas come together in the glass. The smooth, concentrated palate delivers black cherry, black currant, ground pepper and licorice, with just a hint of game. Thanks to the firm, velvety tannins, it's already enjoyable but will also maintain for several years at least; drink through 2019.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Bolgheri Superiore (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) shows a surprising level of brightness and inner energy despite the heat of the vintage. In fact, this wine was a good surprise on many levels. The bouquet is intact with a solid base of dark fruit and sideline embellishments of spice, tobacco and leather all presented in good measure. The richness of the wine builds toward a rewarding finish.
