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 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.
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.
