International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Deep ruby. Hypnotic perfume of black fruits, minerals, botanical herbs and earth. Suave, seamless and sharply focused, with concentrated dark fruit flavors complicated and lifted by subtle floral, incense, saline and mineral qualities. Not a powerhouse but wonderfully pliant and aromatic. Finishes with compelling sweetness, harmonious tannins and superb lingering perfume of black cherry and flowers. (A second bottle was a bit more chocolatey and youthfully aggressive, but showed a remarkably three-dimensional texture, meriting 93 points.)Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2013
Wine Spectator | Rating: 98Powerfully rich and refined, with plenty of grip behind the lip-smacking flavors of kirsch, dark plum, chocolate and boysenberry. Shows excellent balance as well, with a silky texture and a long, spicy finish that's accented with hints of licorice and cedar.Author: Kim Marcus
