Critical Acclaim

"Deep garnet with some brick in color, this is giving a spicy nose with notes of cloves, Chinese five spice and ripe plums plus hints of cherry compote and smoked game. The palate is youthful and has plenty of muscular fruit with firm, fine-grained tannins plus enlivening acid, finishing long."
98 Points

"Very tight and compact, dense and focused, with vibrant blackberry, graphite and black cherry fruit that's intense, concentrated and persistent."
97 Points

"Good red-ruby. Wild aromas of currant, game, earth and mothballs, with a bit of leathery funk. Highly concentrated and very ripe, with a slightly chunky texture and a distinctly chewy quality. But this also boasts sweet fruit and lovely violet lift. Finishes with substantial, building tannins and plenty of thrust."
93 Points
