90 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(22% whole cluster, 243 cases, 13.9%). This is sufficiently reduced to require a thorough aeration if you're going to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is good verve and density to the delicious and caressing yet powerful middle weight plus flavors that possess a trace of warmth on the focused and lingering finish. This isn't without potential issues as it's not certain that the reduction will necessarily dissipate with age though my score offers the benefit of the doubt that it will. Drink: 2022+. (Apr 2017)"
