Reviews 89-91 points Vinous "Bright medium red. Inviting aromas of red raspberry, smoky minerals and spices. At once velvety and vibrant, offering lovely floral lift and an intriguing carnal quality to its flavors of raspberry, red licorice and spices. Finishes with dusty tannins and lingering notes of strawberry and spices. (NM)" 91 points John Gilman "The nose jumps from the glass in a fine blend of red plums, cherries, cocoa, a touch of hazelnut and a lovely base of chalky soil tones. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, tangy and lighter on its feet than the Morey, with a sappy core, modest tannins and fine length and grip on the very well-balanced finish. (JG)"
