This ageworthy, elegant, well-made Beychevelle displays copious red and black cherry fruit notes intertwined with dusty, loamy soil and oak undertones, decent acidity, moderate tannin and impressive intensity as well as length. Give it 1-3 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the next 15-18 years. ~Robert Parker

Muscular in style, with burly-textured blueberry, fig sauce and currant paste flavors followed by bittersweet cocoa on the finish. Though brawny, this has good flesh and should harmonize soon enough. ~Wine Spectator
