“This is a truly delicious Cabernet and Merlot blend sourced from old-vines near the village of St.-Émilion in Bordeaux. The bouquet leaps from the glass with head-turning aromas of black cherry, vanilla and baking spices. The palate is ultra-rich, providing a luxurious purity of fruit and balance rarely present for less than $100. Layers of full-bodied red and black fruit are highlighted with plums and toasty cedar notes that add freshness. This is a densely-packed wine that will continue to provide enjoyment through 2023+.” - Hal Oates | Porthos President & Founder (6/25/18)

“Roc de Cambes is the undisputed qualitative leader …Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Roc de Cambes has very pure notes of cassis, blackberries and plums with nuances of cigar box, anise and lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate offers generous fruit, great concentration and freshness with firm, grainy tannins and an herbal lift on the finish. - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (#115 and #236)

Same stable as Tertre-Rôteboeuf in St.-Émilion. Forget that it’s from Côtes de Bourg – this is a grand vin! Opulent and rich but with a serious structure as well. Rounded tannins provide a smooth, creamy texture while the limestone terroir and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon give character and freshness. - Decanter (4/16)
