WA 92-94 WS 93 Pts - According to Robert Parker - The 2007 Ermitage Le Meal offers up notes of red and black fruits, graphite, licorice, and truffles in its full-bodied, dense, more monolithic style. This powerful, rich 2007 should drink well for 20-25 years.
According to Wine Spectator - Ripe and polished for the vintage, with sleek raspberry and black currant fruit supported by cocoa powder and graphite notes. Shows lingering charcoal and herb hints on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 394 cases made. Rated 90+
