Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "...mingling hints of rose petals and exotic spices with aromas of sweet berries and forest floor in an inviting melange. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and complete, with a muscular chassis of tannin and a rich core of fruit. (WK)" 93 points John Gilman "The bouquet is deep, pure and very classy, wafting from the glass in a mix of dark berries, black cherries, gamebird, woodsmoke, gentle spice tones, just a whisper of fruitcake and a very complex base of soil. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very elegant in profile, with a sappy core, fine mineral drive, ripe, buried tannins and outstanding length and grip on the complex and very refined finish.
