    "In contrast to the reduced nose of the Alouettes, the aromas are fresh, even bright with seductive and enveloping spicy and earthy black pinot fruit that complements to perfection the textured, serious and hugely deep full-bodied flavors that completely drench the palate with extract such that the tannins are rendered almost invisible and conferring a very suave character to the balanced and equally long finish. But here there is even more depth and power and while this won't make anyone forget the 2005, it's a worthy successor." (93pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #33, Jan 2009)

    "This required a good 45 minutes of air to really get rolling but when it did open, the aromas were fresh, indeed even bright with a seductive nose of enveloping spicy and earthy black pinot fruit that complements to perfection the textured, serious and impressive deep full-bodied flavors that completely drench the palate with extract such that the tannins are rendered almost invisible. The abundant sap confers a very suave character to the balanced and equally long finish and the overall impression is a powerful yet focused wine of harmony and grace. I especially like the interplay of tannin, acidity and fruit and this should be capable of aging for several decades yet, with sufficient air, be approachable young if desired." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Dec. 2011)
