| 94 points, James Suckling: "Lots of ripe fruit, with dried berry, strawberry, blackberry and asphalt. It's full-bodied, soft and velvety-textured with a long, intense finish. Very rich and powerful. Goes on and on". (04-Mar-2015)
92 points, Wine Spectator: "Lush and juicy, offering blackberry, boysenberry and bittersweet chocolate flavours. This is balanced toward the tannins on the finish, but remains fresh, focused and complex, with plenty of fruit." (October-2014)
