96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Brown sugar and Luxardo cherry aromas meet with nutmeg and cola spices on the layered, inviting, rich and delicious nose of this bottling. The single-vineyard expression is voluptuous on the palate, delivering joyous and vivid black-cherry flavors that are cut by an underlying acidity and structure, which allows the baking-spice backdrop to shine: a giant wine, with balance. Alcohol 14.7%. (Aug 2020)"
94 points Wine Spectator: "Harmonious, densely packed flavors of ripe dark fruits and Asian spice are layered with chocolate cream accents. Fleshy tannins and acidity power this version, leading to a long, rich finish that features concentrated minerally and underbrush notes. Drink now through 2026. 265 cases made. (6/17/20)"
