96 points Wine Spectator: "[$116 list] A strapping young wine, brimming with dark plum paste and boysenberry compote flavors that are carried by racy licorice snap and fruitcake notes. The lively back end shows a hint of bramble and a touch of tar, giving this energy and power as it courses through the finish. Best from 2023 through 2038. 50 cases imported. (11/14/21)"

94 points Matt Walls (Decanter): "Better balanced than the Renaissance, not so much oak with the natural power of the fruit to the fore. It's very ripe, quite muscular and towards sweet in profile. A bright, zingy, technicolour style, polished and sleek, but will have plenty of fans. Warming alcohol. 100% old-vine Grenache from the lieu-dit Cristia sandy soils. Matured in barriques and demi-muids for 18 months, one-third new oak. Drinking Window: 2022-2033. (Oct 2020)"
