95+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Unfurling to reveal aromas of dark berries and cherries mingled with subtle hints of pencil shavings and nicely integrated new oak, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and layered, with tangy acids, ripe tannins and a long, penetrating finish. 

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast

With its superb tannins, the wine has a great solid core of structure. Over it is an edifice of direct black berry fruits, elegant texture and intense acidity.

95 Points - James Suckling

Super racy and balanced. Masses of licorice and currants, intense aromas. Full and very silky with an intensity of fruit.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

This is loaded for the vintage, with layer upon layer of crushed blackberry, fig paste and mulled black currant offset by smoldering tobacco, charcoal and anise notes. The finish is all iron and roasted earth for now, with the density to be among the longest-lived wines of the vintage.
