Professional reviews and tasting notes from prior vintages added as published (scores within parentheses indicate barrel samples):
94 Points. This one jumps out of the glass with ripe currant, blackberry, mineral and dusky herb flavors, finishing with a savory character that's reminiscent of salted meat. Distinctive and complex, this has miles to go before it's fully developed. Best from 2008 through 2015. 234 cases made. —Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator
93 Points. Rich and sweet, silky in texture, brimming with spicy plum and berry aromas and flavors, finishing dense and powerful. Needs time to develop some grace. Best from 2006 through 2010. 198 cases made. —Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator
93 Points. Lithe, elegant style lets its plum, berry and smoky bacon flavors rocket over the palate into a long, refined finish. A plush, deep wine that manages to achieve a remarkable sense of weightlessness. Drink now through 2011. 137 cases made. —Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator
