99 points, Decanter
"Fragrant blackberry and black cherry, cassis and rich tobacco spices with lovely fresh earth notes and sweet kiss of new cedar wood. Incredibly concentrated dark berry fruit, fabulously angular tannins smooth with crisp edges. Purple florals, dried sagebrush and chocolate shavings with lots of graphite and deep iron-like mineral character. And a finish of dark saturated fruit that goes and goes; purple floral notes, too, polished and bright with vivacious acidity and freshness evident from the first sip to the finish. Potential 100-point wine."
