WA 94 WE 93 IWC 93 WS 92 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - It displays a dark ruby color, a serious nose with some balsamic, minty notes, and aromas of licorice, cedar wood, smoke, cigar ash, a mixture of red and black fruit, and spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon. It feels more Atlantic than Mediterranean. The palate is round and elegant, with great acidity, amulti-dimensional character, and a very long finish. 22,500 bottles were filled. Drink 2014-2028. (Abbreviated)
According to Wine Enthusiast - Lusty blackberry and cassis aromas ride onto a balanced, fresh palate, while flavors of red berry, chocolate, fig and various spices finish nicely, with a tobacco-like note. This could use another year or so to settle; drink from 2015 on.

Lush and open-knit, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit and floral pastille flavors complicated by sweet vanilla and mocha nuances. Clings with superb tenacity on the gently tannic finish, leaving behind notes of dark berry liqueur and rose pastille.
