“This wine is a sleeper selection from one of the Haut-Medoc’s finest up-and-coming cru bourgeois estates. There are less than 400 cases of their luxury cuvee, which is produced from a 7.5-acre parcel planted with 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and an unusually large 13% Petit Verdot. The vines average 40 years of age. The superb 2003 Senejac Cuvee Karolus was fashioned from a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot. Its inky/purple color is followed by glorious aromas of charcoal, creme de cassis, graphite, and spice box. Dense, opulent, and full-bodied, with abundant amounts of rich fruit as well as glycerin, this is a gorgeously proportioned Haut-Medoc to drink over the next 10-15 years.” – Rated 91, Robert Parker
“Beautiful aromas of blackberry and cherry follow through to a full-bodied palate, with round yet firm tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2007. 500 cases made. -JS” – Rated 89, Wine Spectator
