jamessuckling.com, 95 points: Wow. Wonderfully aromatic nose of currants, blackberries and lilacs. Full body but refined and beautiful. The quality of the tannins is exception. So fine. Lovely austerity and tension on the finish. Better in 2016.
Wine Enthusiast, 96 points: (94-96). Barrel sample. Showing a judicious blend of new wood and ripe fruit, this is a wine that has a creamed-apple texture. It's full of bright grapefruit, sweet apple and green plum flavors.
Wine Spectator, 96 points: Tightly wound with a good chalky vibrancy and taut red currant damson plum and bitter cherry notes that show ample length. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

I've bought from Buckley for many years and never had a problem, wines were always as described, and the pricing fair.
