94Wine Spectator

Ripe and packed with cherry and berry fruit, this red is creamy and resonant. Reveals spice, licorice, tobacco, meat and mineral elements as this plays out on the long, spicy finish.

93-95The Wine Advocate

...aromas of blackberries, peonies, loamy soil and sweet soil tones. Full-bodied, ample and velvety, its concentrated core of fruit is framed by rich, powdery tannins and succulent acids.

93-95Vinous / IWC

...blueberry and wild strawberry fruit, violet and crushed rock scents...palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, powerful and saturated in style, fleshy but nicely controlled on the finish.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Ripe but super-fresh and intense fruit. With a light spicy oak layer. Fresh, pure, moreish, with an elegance I haven't seen so far in this line-up. Long, delicate finish.

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
