From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The wine was produced from 12 hl/ha yields, largely because of the vintage. Seventy percent of the harvest made it into the final wine. It shows good structure, an opaque purple color, and a sweet nose of blueberry and black raspberry fruit (a characteristic of this estate), licorice, graphite and spring flowers. It is medium-bodied, has good depth, overall ripeness and should drink nicely for 10-12+ years.
