Natalie's Score: 92/100

Big, black and hulking and in special need of cellar time then decanting. Smoky, tarry with an underlay of black fruit, this Bordeaux is beautifully structured. Serve at an elegant dinner party, especially one involving your boss and the side agenda of a raise or promotion.

Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Great value ($22) for this right-bank Bordeaux. It is yet another example that demonstrate that 2009 was an outstanding vintage and that you can produce terrific wines for an affordable price. It's full body, mostly Merlot based, smooth and round. Drink it now and in the next 3-8 years. Decant for an hour if you drnk it this year.
