Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses both intensity and elegance, with the black fruit layers superbly framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(WS92-95 points) Lots of energy here, with a wide range of loganberry, acai and blackberry fruit flavors pumping along, backed by licorice snap and sweet spice accents.

(WS92-95 points) Lots of energy here, with a wide range of loganberry, acai and blackberry fruit flavors pumping along, backed by licorice snap and sweet spice accents. Has some heft, but this is vivid throughout as it relies on purity and a nice mineral underpinning. Strong showing. – JM

(JS94-95 points) Tight and layered with beautiful fruit here. Full and chewy. Lots going on here. Interested to see its evolution. Velvety and rich. From organically grown grapes.

Silky and nuanced, the 2016 is super finessed from the very first impression. Sweet red cherry, espresso, blood orange and spice all pulse through this racy, impeccably balanced Saint-Émilion, while floral overtones add energy. Simply put, the 2016 is absolutely sublime. Proprietors Stephen and Denise Adams, along with their team, have done a brilliant job with their 2016. Tasted two times. -- Antonio Galloni

It has a bitter edge and black chocolate flavors along with dark plum-skin flavor. The structure will stand this big wine in good stead as it ages.
