61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 11% Malbec, 9% Petite Verdot, 6% Merlot Big sweet tobacco leaf notes up front are joined by sweet floral tones with hints of mint, jasmine and sassafras accenting the plummy black currant fruit. This is big wine: rich and packed with flavor in the mouth, though it’s rather bright and firmly medium-bodied in the mouth. There are plenty of acids here that give the red and blue fruits freshness and a bright quality, but the alcohol is apparent on the palate and adds some heat to the finish. The tannins build through the mouth and really come on rather strongly on the woody, minty finish. A lot of wine, but very young today. It’s got good freshness but the alcohol and intensity will be a turnoff for some people. 90pts

Hereandrsquo;s a pleasant, fruity, rich Bordeaux blend that impresses for its sheer wealth of flavors. Floods the mouth with blackberries, cherries, red and black currants and sweet, smoky oak, with firm but finely ground tannins. Feels direct and simple now, but that could be a function of youth. Try holding for 4andndash;6 years and see where it goes.

This bottling has been remarkably consistent for Girard over the years. It's always very good to excellent, and this 2006, a blend of all five Bordeaux red varieties, is one of their best ever. The wine is rich in blackberries, currants, chocolate, sandalwood and cinnamon spices, wrapped into impressively fine tannins. Drink soon, with decanting.

The dark plum/ruby-hued 2006 Artistry (54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, Merlot, etc.) is medium-bodied and fresh, but somewhat clipped and monolithic.

Sharply focused, tight and richly flavored, yet trim and balanced, offering a beam of currant, black cherry, herb and olive. Gains depth and nuance on the long, integrated finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot. Drink now through 2017.

A classy Cabernet that offers richness without excess, with aromas of ripe cherry, plum and blackberry, with a touch of espresso. Excellent balance, lively acidity, firm tannins and a long, complex aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec. Drink now through 2009.

Intense and spicy, with firm, gutsy, chewy tannins wrapped around a dense core of currant, blackberry, cedar and hints of leather, veering toward the drier, tannic side on the finish. Decant, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2017.
