jamessuckling.com, 95 points: (JS94-95 points) This is a very solid 2015 with lots of tannin and fruit at the finish. Full body. Long finish. Impressive. One of the best ever from here.
jamessuckling.com, 93 points: (JS92-93 points) Shows excellent depth of fruit with chewy and polished tannins. Full and very long. Gorgeous length.
Wine Enthusiast, 93 points: (WE91-93 points) Barrel sample. Great, spicy new wood flavors are balanced by the intense, solid fruits and deep, almost brooding tannins. This is a big wine, but it still preserves a good sense of proportion.
