Reviews 90-92 points Vinous "It has an attractive bouquet of mainly black fruit laced with black tea and bay leaf notes, plus touches of rose petal in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, tending more toward a red fruit profile, with wonderful salinity on the finish. Good potential. Excellent. (NM)" 91 points Burghound "A brooding, slightly riper and more deeply pitched nose features notes of poached plum, cassis and plenty of spice and floral nuances and in particular violet. There is very good punch to the delicious and suave medium-bodied flavors that exude more evident minerality on the firm, serious and youthfully austere finish. (AM)"
