89 Points Allen Meadows
A cool and relatively airy nose exhibits mostly red berry fruit aromas with background hints of rose petal and earth. There is fine punch and lovely detail to the relatively robust flavors though there is a hint of dryness on the finish that will likely age out and my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt.
91 Points Vinous
(from a crop level of 35 hectoliters per hectare): Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of black raspberry, brown spices and musky chocolatey oak. In a more savory style than the négociant version but also shows lovely juicy energy and a more relaxed quality to its flavors of dark raspberry, resin and spices.
