94 points James Suckling: "A nice evolution is in play. This wine is gathering power and finesse simultaneously, becoming more and more defined. Super fragrant strawberry and red cherry fruits on the nose with some meaty, spicy elements adding interest. The palate is lacy and enticing, with a core of vibrant strawberry and red cherry flavor. Fne tannins sweep long and even. A wine that delivers both pleasure and a sense of purpose. Drink now. (12/15/17)"
94 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Decanter): "Enticing, heady notes of ripe, red cherry have the merest touch of Amarena and spell pleasure right away. Splendid fruit is joined by fresh acidity on the palate and a fine frame that shimmers with pepper and thyme. Full of fruit, with a quiet, convincing and beautiful energy. Finish is brooding and full of promise. Drinking Window: 2020-2035. (Sep 2018)"
