What experts say  
  15 "Sweet oaky nose. Dusty fragrance. Very firm and chewy but not as tough as some in this flight. Better overall balance with some dark fruit in the middle."  
  84 "This spicy, medium-bodied, narrowly constructed, fresh, vibrant, floral-scented 2011 lacks enough substance and depth to support its structure. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.""  
  
88 "Pretty lilac, damson plum and bitter cherry notes weave together, with silky texture through the sanguine-tinged finish. Drink now through 2017."
