Robert Parker 94 Points The 2006 Quelan Special Selection is a blend of Petit Verdot, Cot (Malbec) and Carmenere. It offers up an inviting nose of licorice, tar, espresso, blackcherry and blackberry. Dense, rich and muscular on the palate, this is a large-scaled effort with impeccable balance and exceptional length. It will require 4-6 yearsof additional cellaring to reveal its full potential but has the balance to become something special.'
