2011 Estate Cuvee – 95+ pts. - Antonio Galloni Vinous Media
"The 2011 Estate Cuvee (56% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc)is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Sweet tobacco, wild flowers, mint, licorice, fennel and mint all meld together in a perfumed, gracious wine graced with stunning elegance and refinement. The 2011 is less obvious than either the 2010 or 2012, but it is more fragrant and perfumed. Clean, saline notes support the striking finish."
