100The Wine Advocate

...compelling notes of warm black plums, blackcurrant cordial, Morello cherries and black raspberries followed by an opulent perfume of exotic spices, dusty soil, rose oil and crushed rocks with a waft of sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich, seductive and so, so spicy, the palate possesses a multitude of savory, earth and preserved fruit layers, framed by an achingly beautiful velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long, long, long—truly showing off its latent power.

98Vinous / IWC

Rich, sumptuous and opulent to the core...hits all the right notes. Inky dark red/purplish fruit, espresso, lavender and rose petal build in a racy, flamboyant wine loaded with character.

98+ Jeb Dunnuck

...gorgeous, offering classic 2018 purity in its blue fruits, cassis, chocolate, tobacco, cold fireplace, and loamy earth-like aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness and depth...flawless balance, lots of building tannins...

97James Suckling

Lots of blackcurrant, blueberry, dark chocolate, burnt orange and licorice on the nose. Ink and tar, too. It’s full-bodied with rich, concentrated layers of fruit and spice and firm, smooth tannins.
