98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Promontory has recently been released in the domestic market and is due for international release in spring 2021. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has sprung to life since I last tasted it, prancing out of the glass with showy red currant jelly, black cherry compote and warm cassis notes plus hints of cinnamon toast, wilted roses, unsmoked cigars and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate is rich and impactful, featuring layer upon layer of red and black fruits with loads of mineral sparks. The structure is rock-solid with firm, rugged tannins that are beginning to come into line with the flamboyant fruit, finishing with great length and a lively lift.
95 Points - Wine Spectator
A lush and seductive style, well-endowed with creamy-textured cassis, plum and blackberry confiture flavours that glide atop mocha, black licorice and Black Forest cake notes. There's a twinge of loam and flashes of bay leaf and sweet tobacco on the finish to keep this honest but steers primarily in the direction of flashy fruit. Drink now through 2035.
