Critical Acclaim

"There's a lot of new oak here, but also concentrated black cherry and plum flavors underneath. Its velvety texture is offset by ripe tannins finely woven into its fabric. Best from 2008 through 2025."
92 Points

"Saturated deep red. Perfumed, high-toned aromas of wild berries, rose petal and spicy oak. Dense, lively and pungent, with compellingly sweet raspberry and spice flavors. Explosive finishing notes of red berries and flowers. This seemed borderline-volatile initially but was lively and fresh two days later, without losing its high-toned character.
Rating: 92(+?)?"
