95 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "[$70 list] Deep scarlet. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes spice-tinged raspberry liqueur, cherry and potpourri, along with a deeper cola nuance and a hint of smoky minerality. Velvety and seamless on the palate, offering expansive red and blue fruit, lavender pastille and spicecake flavors underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Shows impressive delineation and finishes extremely long and spicy, with polished tannins and resonating floral and cherry notes. Drink: 2023-2032. (Aug 2020)"

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$70 list] This block selection shines in 2018, with a mix of red fruits and a dusting of cocoa. Fermented with native yeasts and half whole-clusters, it was aged 17 months in 57% new French oak. The tannins are firm and astringent, and another year or two of bottle age is recommended. Alcohol 14%. (Dec 2020)"

92 points Wine & Spirits: "[$70 list] From the top end of the Cristom property, where the vines are the most exposed to the Van Duzer winds, this wine is spicy and tightly wound when first poured. The dark plum fruit is steeped in licorice-root notes, with a lovely concentration that lingers. It has the tannic backbone and the whole-cluster grip to match duck sausages. 840 cases. (Oct 2020)"
