97 points Susan Hulme (The Wine Independent): "The 2019 Gaja Camarcanda has green, herbaceous, blackberry and strawberry aromas and flavors set in a sumptuous, velvety texture. What an exciting combination of richness and freshness! The wine combines sappy, dark, woodland, forest-floor flavors with a light dusting of creamy oak and just a memory of roasted coffee on the finish. Combining a vivid acidity and very fine tannins with a luxurious, voluptuous texture (without being heavy), it has a supreme drinkability and a beautifully unforced style. Alcohol 14.5%. Drink: 2022-2040. (12/8/22)"
96 points Falstaff Guide: "Clear, rich ruby. Intense and appealing nose, very pronounced with lots of blueberries and dark currants, some blood orange and some liquorice in the background. Grippy, savoury tannins, a bit grippy at the core, lots of dark berry fruit, spreads out continuously on the palate, juicy and long finish. (9/9/22)"
95 points Wine Spectator: "[$230 list] This verges on thick yet remains balanced and vibrant, courtesy of the lively acidity. Boasts blackberry, dark plum and blueberry flavors framed by tar and toasty oak. The finish is both dense and clean, with a hint of licorice. Excellent length and potential. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2024 through 2038. 1,500 cases made, 225 cases imported. (9/30/22)"
95 points James Suckling: "A very beautiful young red with blackcurrant, fresh herb and hints of cedar and smoke. It’s full-bodied yet very polished and refined with a lovely texture. Extremely long and graceful. Try after 2025. (10/5/22)"
