This is a splendidly mouthfilling wine on the palate: earthy, rich, broad... even beefy behind that mountain of blackberry and plum. There are comfortingly soft tannins, and the acidity is very finely judged, subtle and unassertive, lifting but without dominating or throwing the wine out of balance. Wholly satisfying, as well as pure and true. DRINK 2018-2030 collapse

Deeply colored; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavors are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange. collapse

Full body, some really structured tannins, driven acidity and a chewy finish. Lots of fruit, but it remains tight and linear throughout. Drink in 2022. Screw cap. collapse

Wine Spectator, March 2019
Plump and spicy, featuring clove and nutmeg overtones to the blackberry and huckleberry flavors, with accents of black tea and gingerbread backed by dense, velvety tannins. Drink now through 2033. — MW
