Wine AdvocateThe 2012 La Muse, which is 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec, is a smaller cuvée of 1,840 cases. The wine has plenty of spice box, cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake and Asian plum sauce, along with black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. Ripe, round, full-bodied and opulent, this is a wine that can be drunk now or cellared for another three decades. Interestingly, the alcohol levels are not all that high in any of these wines, with most of them rarely exceeding 14.3%.

Wine SpectatorA Bordeaux-like expression, reminiscent of Ausone, exhibiting a mix of gravelly, crushed rock earthiness, with dried herb, licorice, cedar and dusty, drying currant flavors. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Best from 2017 through 2028. 1,200 cases made.
