91-94 points and 'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(two-thirds of the vines are between 70 and 80 years of age and the remaining vines are approximately 20+ years old). A markedly spicy nose consists of dark currant, violet and earth nuances where a note of tea can be discerned. There is a lovely inner mouth perfume to the refined, velvety and caressing yet quite serious and tautly muscular flavors that also flash plenty of minerality on the powerful finish that exhibits excellent length. Drink: 2033+. (Apr 2020)"
91-93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "...The vineyard was picked on September 1st and comes in at 13.7 percent octane this year, offering up a ripe and sappy nose of black cherries, black raspberries, dark chocolate, woodsmoke, pigeon, dark soil tones and cedary oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, broad-shouldered and plenty sappy at the core, with ripe, buried tannins, good balance and a long, fairly powerful finish... 2028-2065. (Nov/Dec 2019)"
