" Here the aromatic profile is completely different because while this too is on the generously oaked side, the spicy red, blue, black and floral aromas are reserved to the point of being downright reluctant and the big, robust, powerful, intense and rich flavors are also tight yet the underlying material is notable and if not super dense, then certainly up to the task of absorbing the wood, all wrapped in a youthfully austere but long and impeccably balanced finish. A promising Riche." (Jan 2010)

"A beautiful, silky red, with sweet cherry, flowers and spices. The structure is there, but it's well-integrated, and this offers charm and a sense of place. There's a finely woven aftertaste of berry, mineral and oak spice. Best from 2014 through 2028. 18 cases made." (Jun 2011)
