This is a stunner, as it has been over recent vintages, and consumers need to take notice before the prices match the level of quality. Drink it over the next 15 years. Tiny yields of 23 hectoliters per hectare achieved 14% natural alcohol. - Robert Parker

A wonderful red with sweet chocolate, berry and licorice character. Full body, fine tannins and a finish with orange peel undertones. Balanced. Best ever? Better in 2017.

Deep in color, lushly textured, with layers of licorice, black and blue fruits, espresso, dark cocoa and earth. It's going to be hard to find a better value in 2012 than this wine.

Pulls together on the finish, helped by a pleasant graphite edge. More harmonious now than when tasted from barrel. Best from 2017 through 2022. 1,915 cases made. –JM
