Wine Spectator"This red seems to be developing, from the fading cherry and berry fruit to the leafy, underbrush notes. Still, this shows sweetness and a firm underpinning of iron, acidity and tannins that imparts length and dynamics on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2033." - BS, Aug 2016
Wine Enthusiast"Fragrant and refined, this shows enticing aromas of wild herb, rose petal, dark spice, red berry and a whiff of camphor. Luminous and elegant, the vibrant palate has juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry, star anise and white pepper while bright acidity and taut polished tannins provide the framework. It’s still young but already possesses terrific poise." —K.O.
James Suckling"A red with dried fruit and walnut aromas and flavors. Full to medium body, chewy tannins and a medium finish." - James Suckling, March 2016
