Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Compelling aromatics vault it into rarefied company, a riot of black cherry, pepper, graphite and cigar box. The fruit is immaculate and aging for almost a year in one-third new French oak polishes it perfectly. The finish has grip, length and power.
Wine Spectator 92 points - Sleek and inviting, layering the black cherry, pear tart and root beer flavors on a polished frame. Finishes long, with complexity and definition. Drink now through 2023.-H.S. (Oct 14 2015)
