10/18/2012 - JONANATOR WROTE: 88 Points Very good QPR. Drinkable now and quite nice for a midweek wine. Strong notes of coffee on the nose Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment Options 6/5/2012 - WINENOT? WROTE: 88 Points Good, solid wine. A bit more robust than expected of the french. Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment Options 5/23/2012 - LOREN SONKIN WROTE: 91 Points 2009 Bordeaux ( and Margaux Blanc, Alpha Omega Late Harvest) (My Home): Another superb QPR. Ruby in color. The nose has cassis, iodine and hints of red cherry peppers. Soft on the palate. nice and easy to drink. Black raspberry fruit. Nice balance. Under $15 and delicious now. Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment Options 8/1/2011 - EUROYUP WROTE: 88 Points Half cabernet sauvignon, half merlot with a tiny bit of petit verdot from a clay-limestone terroir. Color: very dark purple. Nose: powerful fruit in which blackberries are prominent, and smokey. Taste: vibrant, very powerful fruit, mostly blackcurrants and blackberries with nice depth. Fine tannins, that are a bit prominent at the moment; or is it a certain one-dimensional character of the fruit? Medium to full-bodied, with a long finish this wine is impressive. I am curious how it will develop after the two or three years it should be kept according to the winemaker before drinking. Could be kept until twenty, thirty years, according to him. For now 87-88, but potentially 89-90.
