"Glorious aromas, like walking into a flower shop, from roses to lilacs. Lots of dark fruit too. Then goes to slate and dark mushroom. Full body, super refined tannins and refresh and ultra-clean finish. A thoroughly balanced and refined wine. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, 6% petit verdot, and 4% malbec. So delicious to drink now." JamesSuckling.com

"Charmingly supple and complex, with layers of earth- and mineral-laced currant and wild berry flavors. Impressive for the tender tannins, finishing clean and pure, if short. Drink now. 2,400 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Finer and subtler aromatics than the 2012. The palate here has a core of power that radiates through a silken, very lightly textural mouthfeel. Lots of power and concentration here with a bit more finesse and energy than the 2012. Somehow simultaneously finessed and slightly rugged. Lovely purity of fruit without being about fruit flavours. There are dark notes throughout along with flavours of dark fruit (though not raisin), dark rock minerality and a very well integrated touch of spice. Fine tannin with still a hint of mountain power is nicely balanced with a long finish of mouth-watering acidity and plenty of sapidity to please the palate. Nicely done."
