94 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "[$134 list] Saturated magenta. Expansive aromas of ripe red and blue fruit, potpourri, incense and smoky minerals pick up a spicy nuance as the wine opens up. Broad and seamless in the mouth, displaying fine delineation to the sappy, mineral-drenched black raspberry, boysenberry, violet pastille and spicecake flavors. Shows a distinctly elegant character and finishes extremely long and sweet, with discreet tannins framing lingering blue fruit and floral notes. Drink: 2024-2033. (Apr 2020)"

17.5/20 points Richard Hemming, MW (JancisRobinson.com): "Two barrel samples, which will be blended roughly 50-50 in the final blend.Barrel sample one: 100% Syrah, 50% whole-cluster fermentation. Meaty, very savoury and leathery. Serious, heavy, peppery palate. Really rich and thick on the palate. Loads of floral scent on the finish. Finishes very bitter.Barrel sample two: 95% Syrah, 5% Viognier. 30% whole-cluster fermentation. Sweeter, more lifted fruit on the palate, with a dark, toasted spice character. Juniper-style bitterness to finish. Very appetising. Drink: 2019-2029. (4/15/19)"
