92-94 points Stephen Tanzer (Vinous): "Medium ruby, less saturated than the Damodes. Totally different on the nose, offering complex scents of wilder berries, dark cherry, licorice, garrigue and spices, plus a complicating soil element. Less black fruit and floral in character than the more primary Damodes but very sexy right now, conveying a silky texture and noteworthy volume to its fruit, spice and savory mineral flavors. This wine is typically more difficult to taste early than the Damodes but with its impression of high pH (actually 3.54), this '16 should offer relatively early pleasure. (Jan 2018)"

91-93 points/'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from yields of only 20 hl/ha in 2016). A deft touch of wood sets off the distinctly earthy and gamy aromas of plum extract, wild dark berries and a whiff of spice. There is a sleek mid-palate mouthfeel to the muscular and powerful big-bodied flavors that also brim with dry extract on the lingering and very, very serious and overtly rustic finish. The intensity does a slow build from the mid-palate on back and leaves no doubt that long-term cellaring is advised. Drink: 2031+. (Jan 2018)"
