    (92-94 points) Barrel sample. Big, ripe, juicy wine, the tannins very solid and dark. It has layers of new wood, power and considerable density. ROGER VOSS

    Dark and structured this is a firm wine. It has a smoky wood character powerful tannins over intensely ripe fruit. Acidity and sweetness balance to give a dense wine powered with richness and destined to age for many years.

    Deep and dark with a ton of smoke and earth, the cassis fruit very much in the background, this is a concentrated and complex wine. Powerful yet racy palate with an elegant mineral finish. Drink or hold.
