95/100 Cellartracker: "Oh wow....this nose was haunting. Notes of dried cherry, sandalwood, dried flowers, coconut, sweet, saline, leather, cedar, porcini mushroom. So much going on here, fruit is so pure, but the secondary and tertiary characteristics and so integrated. Palate jumps with cherry pit, red flowers, leather, cedar, dried raspberry, dried cherry, cured meat, earth and smooth and polished tannins. The finish is medium + and quite complex. Reference point wine".

95/100 Cellartracker: "Popped and poured, followed approximately 2 hours. Garnet in the glass, with moderate bricking at the rim. An expressive nose of decaying red fruit, sandalwood, citrus zest, mushroom, decaying leaves, undergrowth, cured meat, dried herbs, leather, coriander, balsamic reduction, sweat and soy. On the palate, structurally, this is relatively light-bodied, medium-plus acidity and mostly integrated tannin, making this wine feel silky smooth. The finish is moderate, finishing a touch bitter, characterized by dried cranberry, spice, earth and dried herbs. This majestic beauty was seemingly quite stable, sitting in the glass for quite some time with no noticeable decline".
