JS 90 WS 90 IWC 89 Pts - According to James Suckling - This is so floral on the nose with hints of citrus. Full bodied but lightly silky with a very tangy, juicy character. Very fruity and delicious. Drink now.
According to Wine Spectator - There's an enticing floral quality to the cherry, plum and wild berry flavors, with juniper notes midpalate. Features plenty of fresh acidity, with a complex, minerally finish that delivers hints of hoisin sauce. Drink now through 2020.
According to Stephen Tanzer - Bright red-ruby. Aromas of crushed dark berries and kirsch are lifted by a cool violet topnote. At once dense and juicy, with brisk acidity framing the fine-grained flavors of dark fruits, spices and fresh herbs. Finishes with smooth tannins and very good length.
Tasting Notes - Bright ruby-red. Fresh and floral, featuring blackberry, raspberry and violets. Dense, thick with a noticeable frame. Old Work acidity with silky tannins and a lengthy finish. 14.5% ABV.
