Average critic rating : 91.25 points



This single vineyard cuvee from Jonathan Maltus is planted with 80-year-old vines that somehow survived the famous frost of 1956. Rooted in a thin layer of clay over limestone, they have produced a sensational dense ruby/purple-colored 2011 offering fragrant notes of forest floor, spring flower, lavender, creme de cassis, and a subtle touch of smoke. Broad, savory, rich and brilliantly executed, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. The composition is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Wine Advocate #212 Apr 2014



The berry, light vanilla and hazelnut character is very attractive with polished tannins and a juicy finish. Little chewy but should come around nicely. jamessuckling.com
