97 points Tom Mullen (Forbes): "A 70/20/10 blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wispy light and yet powerful aromas of blackberries, plums, sage, moist earth, morels and licorice. A touch of attractive herbaceous aromas such as ferns. In the mouth this is a rich, silky, juicy beauty: a bucket of fresh, glistening fruit. Generous and opulent flavors of plum jam, mint chocolate and treacle. Well layered tannins underlie complex and satisfying flavors. Glorious! Pair with duck a l’orange, a sirloin steak or a squash/ mushroom rigatoni. (2/15/21)"

92 points James Suckling: "A juicy red with berry, rust, wet-earth and stone aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Lots of character. Drink after 2022. (3/3/21)"
