88-90 Parker: "While Beauregard's wines have a tendency to be monolithic and oaky, the 2009 is one of the finest I have tasted from this estate. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by copious quantities of licorice, blackberry, and mulberry characteristics as well as silky tannins, a sweet, fat mid-palate, and a long finish with just a hint of oak. It should drink well for 10-15+ years. (Tasted two times.)"
91-93 Falstaff: "Zarte Kirschfrucht, ein Hauch von Weichseln, Orangenzesten, mineralische Note. Saftig, frisch, elegante Textur, angenehme Zwetschkenfrucht, mineralisch, wirkt relativ leichtfüßig, harmonischer Sril, hat Entwicklungspotenzial."
