97Wine Spectator

Black color. Minty, with loads of violet and berry character and hints of spice. Full-bodied, racy and fine, with silky tannins and a long finish. One of the top wines of the vintage.

90Robert M. Parker Jr.

..The wine is medium-bodied, with relatively elevated tannins, outstanding concentration & purity, but somewhat clipped as well as compressed finish. This certainly outstanding wine has put on a bit of weight in its evolution in the bottle.

17Jancis Robinson

...Herbaceous sweetness and undergrowth and pepper. Then more meaty. Finishes dry but not drying though there is definitely less flesh in the middle. By contrast it is fresh and persistent. Later: sweetly herbal and more coffee.
