94 points James Suckling: "A juicy and delicious red with sweet tobacco, berries and hints of cedar. Black olives, too. Pops out. Medium-to full-bodied, tight and polished with a beautiful center palate and a yummy finish. The texture and flavor is so attractive. Essence. Touch of co-fermented viogner. Enjoy now. (6/24/20)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "A floral aroma introduces this red, with plenty of meaty and Asian spice notes to the decadent roasted plum and dark cherry flavors. Slate and hot stone accents come in on the muscular finish, with hints of baker's chocolate. Drink now through 2023. (5/31/19)"

91 points Joaquín Hidalgo (Vinous): "A Syrah with Cabernet Sauvignon (7%) and Viognier (3%) from Colchagua, all co-fermented. Dark violet in color, it offers aromas of blackberry and raspberry jam and attractive sweet spices. Indulgent, with good volume. The firm, slightly taut tannins lend structure to the lengthy finish. Drink: 2020-2027. (Mar 2020)"
