93Vinous / IWC

93James Suckling

Aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, orange zest, black tea, praline and bitter chocolate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, polished tannins. Silky and supple. Excellent balance and freshness.

92+ Jeb Dunnuck

...terrific bouquet of red and black currants as well as savory tobacco, spice box, and chocolaty oak nuances. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has a balanced, concentrated mouthfeel, lots of firm tannins, and a big finish.
