Wine Enthusiast

Structured, with grip and length, this wine is ripe and rich in style with tremendous tannins. Chalky in texture, it provides layers of cassis, vanilla and clove, with the mountain appellation's signature earthiness and herbal underrates. This will do well to cellar; enjoy best from 2028–2038.

Wine Spectator

Richly fruity, with a deep well of boysenberry, fig and blackberry compote notes that won't quit, pumping along while licorice, fruitcake and ganache notes fill in. This has a roasted apple wood frame and a late tug of cast iron, which keep it all grounded.
