When Robert Parker opens his tasting notes with the “Hallelujah,” you know you’re in for an experience. Black Forest cake, licorice, crème de cassis and warm blueberries are balanced by hints of charcoal, truffle, and tapenade. The incredibly long finish is a gift that keeps giving on this full-bodied, insanely rich masterpiece of a Bordeaux. Positively Perfect.

James Suckling

Blueberries, currants and Indian spices on the nose follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a lovely finish. It's intense and refined. A beauty. It goes on for minutes. Speechless. Better and cleaner than the great 1990.
