James Suckling: 90 Points
A Bordeaux displaying intense aromas and flavors of red cherries, plums and dried flowers. Full body, refined yet firm tannins, lovely acidity and a long, spicy finish. Very cabernet. Drink in 2016.
Wine Spectator: 89 Points
Shows good brambly grip, with a solid, medium-weight core of plum and black currant fruit, backed by toasted alder and black licorice notes. Hefty, but approachable overall. Drink now through 2018.
