92pts James Suckling
Very pretty blackberries and blueberries with some lavender and violet undertones. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Needs two or three years to come together.
90pts Wine Spectator
Focused and well-structured, with expressive black cherry, dusty mocha and spice flavors that linger toward refined tannins.
On the nose, aromatics express themselves in toasty oak and bright, ripe Bing cherry. It is medium-bodied on the palate with well-rounded tannins and flavors of deep red fruit, all spice, and white pepper. The finish is long and supple with notes of cigar box and tanned leather.
