91 Points - Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media: "Dark ruby. Aromas of mineral-accented blackberry, candied violet and licorice, with a floral nuance emerging slowly. Lively and precise on the palate, showing very good concentration and power to its dark fruit, violet pastille and mineral flavors. Stains the palate but comes off as lithe, finishing smoky and long, with pliant tannins folding smoothly into the wine's fruit. This is quite powerful and downright exotic for the vintage."
