Wine Spectator, June 2012

(90-93 points) This is solid, with a core of black currant, crushed plum and fig notes laced judiciously with sweet toast and graphite notes. Nice length.

jamessuckling.com, December 2015

Ripe and fresh still with wet earth, stone and lovely basil and lemon grass undertones. Full-bodied, chewy and tannic now but shows plenty of leather, tar and dark fruit character. Extracted style. Better in 2017.
