93 Points James Suckling - A firm and silky red with pretty tension and texture. Medium-bodied, tight and delicious. Racy and refined. Dried berries, bark and tea. Pretty wine.
93 Points Vinous - Brilliant red. Vibrant mineral- and spice-accented aromas of fresh red berries and fresh rose, with a hint of incense building with air. Boasts excellent clarity and lift, with sappy strawberry and floral pastille flavors joined by a suave hint of spicecake. Finishes long and sweet, with supple tannins and emphatic floral persistence. Here's 2013 at its best, offering a suave blend of power, concentration and vivacity.
91 Points Wine Spectator - Bright and peppery, with a spicy cast to the cherry and coffee flavors, remaining velvety and focused through the deft finish. Has presence and depth. Drink now through 2021.
