…awesome smoky, blackberry, and cassis-scented nose intermixed with hints of espresso roast, lead pencil shavings, cedar, and subtle new oak. 96-100 points, Robert Parker (erobertparker.com).
Super-ripe aromas of black raspberry, gunflint, chocolate, minerals, flowers and sexy, nutty oak. Wonderfully lush, creamy and sweet, with extraordinary concentration of dark fruit, mineral and floral flavours. 96 points, Stephen Tanzer (vinous.com).
