This well-known estate owned by the Duboscq family displays a deep ruby color along with some of the toasty oak that has long been a component part of this cuvee. With slightly more depth than many wines in its class, it possesses medium body, plenty of sweet ripe fruit and an attractive texture. This successful effort is a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The Haut Marbuzet has a ripe, showy bouquet that is well defined. Cassis and blueberry aromas lifted from the glass in typically ostentatious fashion. The palate is medium-bodied with lower acidity than its peers. Rounded and supple in the mouth, it is missing a little tension towards the finish. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Blending 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the wine reached 13.4% alcohol. Aged in 100% new oak for 12 months before being moved to one year-old barrels to finish the aging. Only a small percentage of the vines were damaged by the September hail storms. They were forced to pick some of their Cabernet Sauvignon vines a little earlier than they would have liked for fear of rot. Ruby in color with oak, clay, earth and wood in the nose. Round, sweet dark berries in the mouth, but there is a woody dry sensation in the finish. This is the 50th vintage for the owner. theWineCellarInsider.com
