92 pts. Suckling - Aromas of plums, wet earth and minerals follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins that are polished and clean. I like the walnut and fruity character in a subtle and reserved way. Needs at least five or six years of bottle age to come together. Very fine indeed.
90 pts. Parker: Supple tannins and attractive camphor, mulberry, black currant and dusty, earthy notes are present in this full-bodied, legitimate sleeper of the vintage. The purity, texture, pure charm and depth of this wine are impressive. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
90 pts. Spectator: Well-structured, with tobacco and cedar framing damson plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The tobacco edge re-emerges on the finish, with savory and dark olive notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2024.
