Critical Acclaim

"The firmest tannins, but over a good layer of ripe fruits, fresh acidity and a core of spicy wood.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points "
93 Points

"A wine with plum and berry character and hints of spice and earth. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Try in 2015. "
92 Points

"Ruby-purple. Showy aromas of superripe cassis, black plum, dried herbs, wet underbrush and earth. Then big and minerally on the palate, but with more restraint than the nose suggests to its juicy blackcurrant, ripe black cherry, spice and mineral flavors. Finishes very long and finely tannic, with hints of smoke and building complexity. This is the second very successful wine in a row from Olivier, if in a very ripe and rather sweet style.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points "
91 Points

"Subtle aromas of violet and blueberry follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a fresh, clean finish.
Barrel Sample: 87-90 Points "
90 Points

"This perennial underachiever performed well above my expectations, and I am prepared to say this is the best Olivier I have ever tasted. Dense ruby/purple, with sweet, unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with graphite, black currants, cherries, and spice, it is medium to full-bodied, fleshy, beautifully textured, and long. It should drink well for 20 or more years.
Barrel Sample: 88-90 Points "
