"Spicy red and blackcurrant aromas compete with peppery, cedary notes. Sweet, rich, ripe fruit hits the palate in a medium-bodied, soft, pretty style. A tannic finish does not detract from the precocious, flattering personality of this elegant, herbaceous but delicious, medium-bodied, supple Ducru-Beaucaillou."
"Reveals a deep ruby color in addition to copious quantities of blackberry fruit, a straightforward personality, good body and ripeness, and no hard edges."
"This delicious Riesling is opulent, rich, lusciously sweet and has a long finish."
"The Cab Sauv and Merlot grapes that make up the Oakville Cabernet blend are grown on Estate controlled vineyards. Packs in lots of ripe and complex currant, tea and cedary oak flavors, with touches of green herb and tobacco, and finishes with firm, crisp tannins."
"Seductive red. Aromas of tea, leather and ripe fruit. Full- to medium-bodied, with fine and smooth tannins and a ripe fruit finish. Delicious, balanced red. - JS"
"A spicy, peppery wine, with a hint of fruity flavor such as berries or dark cherries."
"91 Points- Wine Advocate. The nose offers up gorgeously sweet, expansive aromas of melted licorice, black cherries, currants, underbrush, and a hint of camphor. Dense, chewy, full-bodied, and fabulously pure, with a multilayered, textured mid-palate as well as a long, savory, well-delineated, moderately tannic finish."
"Blockbuster. Incredibly intense black cherry aromas, with hints of mint and red licorice. It soon turns to flowers. Full bodied, and full- hrottled, with masses of tannins and concentrated fruit. Very extracted. Needs time still. Best after 2006"
