90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
This is quite ripe yet retains a lovely freshness to the cassis, black cherry, lavender and warm earth scents. There is excellent power and volume to the concentrated, intense and mouth coating big-bodied flavors that culminate in an impressively long and balanced finish. (AM) (4/2013)
Rich and dense, with pure black cherry and spice flavors. A bit rigid now, with plenty of buried fruit. Finishes with edgy tannins and good length. Best from 2016 through 2026. 250 cases imported. (BS) (6/2014)
Bright, deep red. Tangy red cherry, raspberry, spice and fresh herb aromas are clearly riper than those of the Fremiers. Enticingly sweet, saline and vigorous, with sappy red fruit flavors lifted by pepper, minerals and spicy soil tones. Very refreshing, perfumed, concentrated wine with a long finish featuring sweet, fine-grained tannins.
