97pts James Suckling

Wonderful aromas of flowers, plums, terracotta and white pepper. Intense, yet ever so subtle. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and intense finish. Shows excellent length. Drink after 2021.

94pts Vinous

Good deep red. Complex aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, graphite, mocha, and mint. Focused and suave with very attractive sweetness and standout purity to its flavors of red berries and candied flowers. Finishes with polished tannins and outstanding length.

93pts Wine & Spirits

This wine aged for two years in French oak barriques, gaining notes of cacao and cardamom that enrich its ripe cherry and plum flavors. Hints of orange zest and crunchy herbs add dimension, the flavors held together by fine, dusty tannins. Best Buy

93pts Wine Spectator

Tightly wound, with tart cherry, graphite, earth and cigar box flavors, aligned to an edge of firm tannins. Flirts with rusticity, yet remains tense and smoldering. Should gain more length as it opens. Best from 2023 through 2039.
