96 points – Sam Kim February 2019 – Power and grace in one; the gorgeous bouquet shows crème de cassis, dark plum, vanilla and cedar characters with a touch of dried herb complexity. The palate is concentrated and richly expressed, while remaining superbly balanced and harmonious. It is delightfully structured by seamlessly integrated tannins, finishing splendidly long and engaging. At its best: 2020 to 2032.
