Critical Acclaim

WE88 Wine Enthusiast 12/31/2014

"The Cabernet Franc in the blend gives an attractive perfumed character. Spice and pepper go with ripe black plum fruit flavors. It’s dense and concentrated, the tannins prominent at this stage. Drink from 2017." (88 pts.)

RP86 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Apr 2014

"This attractive 2011 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with sweet black cherry and berry fruit, medium body, soft tannins and excellent purity as well as depth. This value-priced effort may merit an even higher score with another year or two in the bottle. Drink it over the next 5–6 years." (86 pts.)

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
