"(a 65/35 blend of nebbiolo and barbera, aged in one-third new barriques, down from nearly 100% prior to 2009): Good bright red-ruby. Currant, mocha and dark chocolate on the moderately oaky nose. Densely packed and sweet, with terrific acid spine giving energy and balance to the mid-palate. Dark berry, mineral and dark chocolate flavors offer impressive concentration. Finishes lively and long, with a light touch. A very successful blend of nebbiolo fruit and barbera acidity."

Vinous Media 91
"The 2011 Le Pin rushes from the glass with dark red cherries, plums, spices, mint and wild flowers, all in a racy, full-bodied style with tons of appeal. The 2011 turns explosive, especially on the close. There is a lot to like, but I suspect the 2011 will be even better with another year or two of bottle age."
