Tastings Notes

Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, January 2018 : "The most traditional in style, with tons of peppery herbs, beef blood, iodine and violet aromas and flavors, as well as awesome amounts of black and blue fruit. It's the finest wine made from this up and coming superstar (it surpasses the 2010) and offers a huge, full-bodied profile, thrilling purity of fruit, serious amounts of tannin (they're sweet, but there's lots of them) and a blockbuster finish.

John Livingstone-Learmonth, July 2017 : 5 stars. “Very dark robe. It has a broad, sustained nose, resembles sandalwood, striking wild raspberry, also licorice, with much potential for extended variety later on. The palate attacks on closely packed red fruits, damson and mulberry with mineral in the tannins, concentrated juice just peeking out. This is Big Wine, with much emphasis on the second half of the palate. It’s really thorough, has great length. It is not far off six stars.”
