Wine Spectator 88 points - Slightly chunky in style, with baker’s chocolate and dark currant paste notes rolled together, backed by plum sauce and dark tobacco leaf details. The finish picks up a slightly taut, singed cedar note. Has guts but lacks purity in the end. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2015. 112 cases imported. -JM  (Jun 15 2014)

Vinous 92 points - (48% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot; aged for 18 months in 60% new French oak): Bright red-ruby. Knockout floral nose combines dark raspberry, cassis, graphite, shoe polish, spicy oak and licorice. Wonderfully pliant, fresh and deep; ripe but dry and powerful, with intense cherry, dark berry and earth flavors lifted by a violet quality and enlivened by brisk acidity (6.8 grams per liter!). Finishes with firm but sweet tannins and terrific persistence. This impeccably balanced, multilayered, generous wine will need time in bottle to express itself; it may well merit an even higher score by the early 2020s. (I was also able to retaste the 2003 version and it was a stunner: Deep red-ruby. Sexy, sweet aromas of red berries, mocha, coffee bean and lead pencil had me thinking of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. Plush and generous, with sweet red berry and milk chocolate flavors complicated by insidious coffee and herb nuances. Finishes very smooth and long, with resolved tannins. This actually tastes drier than its 2.5 g/l r.s. There’s no rush to drink this highly complex, still-unfolding wine, which may well go on for another decade. I scored it 93 points.) 92+ Points  (Jun 2015)

Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2010 Morgenster sees 18 months in French oak of which 60% is new. It has a lifted menthol-tinged bouquet that is reminiscent of Right Bank Bordeaux. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent strawberry and raspberry fruit, fine tannins and a fine line of acidity. There is an attractive caressing texture here and an understated finish that completes this commendable, classic-styled Merlot. Drink now-2016. (Oct 2013)
