Strong personality with a complex, elegant yet concentrated nose, with ripe red fruit notes enveloped in aromas of mineral and wildflowers along with spicy notes from the wood. Smooth and elegant on the palate, has sweet pleasant tannins. Persistent, lingering finish in the mouth. 92 Points (Wine Spectator #68 Top 100 of 2014)

An alluring perfume of toasty oak, lavender, violets, mineral, blackberry and blueberry compote. Followed by a full-bodied, rich opulent wine with incipient complexity, notes of licorice, mocha, and espresso emerging on the palate. Lengthy finish is pure and persistent. 96 Points (Robert Parker)

Aromas of berries and liquorice balanced by hints of clove, rosemary, thyme and tobacco leaves from the oak cask ageing. Shows a gentle tannin providing roundness and freshness. 93 Points (Wine Spectator – #56 Top 100 of 2015)

Opaque purple/black, it reveals a superb perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, leather,spice box, floral notes, licorice, and blackberry liqueur. Massively constructed, powerful, but brooding, this full-bodied, intensely flavored, complex effort has a 60+ second finish. 97 Points (Wine Advocate)

Bouquet of dark cherry and blackberry fruit conserve with some spicy notes, notably cinnamon and toasted vanilla. Good fruit weight with a medium body, power and richness yet with great acid balance and a velvety tannic structure. This finish is long, showing good persistence of blackberry conserve and complex spicy notes.

Aromas of orange blossoms, green apples, freshly cut pineapple, and stone fruit. Soft on the palate, a well balanced flavor profile that enhances its freshness and complexity. 89 Points (International Wine Cellar)
