Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90-92 Points- This tannic, backward, structured, sizeable St.-Emilion exhibits a steely backbone, huge tannins, and equally huge extract. Reserved, weighty, and rich on the palate, it is a good choice for young readers who have the time to wait for it to come into focus and shed some of its tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2030. P.S. This is the St.-Emilion estate of California visionary, Jess Jackson.
Varietals- 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cab Sauvignon
