Critic Reviews:
"A sweet bouquet of black cherry liqueur, blackberry, roasted herbs, melted liquorice and smoked earth to go with a voluptuous, up-front and fruit-loaded profile on the palate... it's a gorgeous, full-bodied and beautifully balanced effort that will drink well through 2026." 93/100 (Wine Advocate)

'Very dark blackish crimson. Headily potent with some floral notes. Very smooth and polished. Firm with sufficient ripe fruit for the acidity. No excess alcohol nor tannin. One of the more muscular examples. It’s not playing the intense ripe fruit card.' 17/20 (Jancis Robinson MW)
