Wine Enthusiast 91 Pts"This smoky wine already shows a fine balance between oak, spice and bright red fruit. It's structured to age but is also attractive now; its juicy berry flavors show easily through the tannins. Drink from 2019. - Roger Voss"

Wine Advocate"The real steal here is the 2009 Cotes de Bordeaux red, a blend of two-thirds Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and a small amount of Cabernet Franc. A deep ruby/plum color is followed by sweet black currant, licorice, camphor and forest floor aromas. Medium-bodied with copious fruit and soft tannins, it is ideal for drinking over the next several years. "
