93 pts | Wine & Spirits "This wine felt quiet when first poured, and needed three days to find its voice. Initially reduced, its flavors are wildly concentrated, turning elegant with air, with a woodsy spice that emerges and suggests a lean steak for a pairing, like tenderloin." —P.J.C.
94 pts | Vinous "Bright ruby-red. Cherry and red currant scents are accompanied by building floral, succulent herb and exotic spice nuances. Shows very good depth as well as vivacity, offering juicy red and blue fruit, lavender, cola and mocha flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up. Tactile and focused in style, finishing impressively long and spicy, with mounting tannins and resonating cherry pit and floral notes." - Josh Raynolds
