100Jeb Dunnuck

...heavenly bouquet of crème de cassis, lead pencil, cedarwood, graphite, and tobacco...hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, an incredible sense of elegance and purity, building tannins, and a great, great finish.

98+ The Wine Advocate

...blackcurrant cordial, espresso, charcoal and black truffles to begin, before blossoming out to a whole array of preserved black and blue fruits, dusty soil, crushed rocks and iron ore scents plus a waft of roses. The medium to full-bodied palate is built like a brick house, with firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone supporting the muscular fruit, finishing very long and mineral laced.

98James Suckling

An elegant, complex red with currants, blackberries and hints of cedar, graphite and lead-pencil shavings. It’s full-bodied with polished, velvety tannins and a fresh, bright finish. Fluid and refined.

96Vinous / IWC

...gorgeous... Deep, pliant and nuanced...impeccably balanced. Silky and plush... Hints of rose petal, lavender, mint and blood orange add brightness...stunning wine by any measure.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Ripe cassis, cured meat, graphite and toast on the nose. Chalky, bold tannic structure complements the cassis fruit core and promotes notes of cedar and pencil shavings... Long and driven on the finish...elegant and poised style.
