96 Pts. The Wine Enthusiast

93 pts. and 2 Puffs Conn. Guide to CA Wine

"This has a grand array of exotic flinty, meaty, smoky and spicy aromas. The powerful flavors taste a bit restrained at first sip, then unfold and seem to expand on the palate. Pure and brilliant layers of ripe blackberry, smoked herbs and darkest chocolate ride on an elegant texture of fine tannins and supportive acidity."Jim Gordon
