Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 91
"This is one of the finest wines I have tasted from this highly regarded terroir that has rarely been exploited to its maximum potential. Loads of chalk dust intertwined with sweet kirsch, black currants, licorice and camphor jump from the glass of this full-bodied wine, which has terrific fruit intensity, lots of glycerin, a lavish richness and a long, heady finish with light to moderate tannin."
Wine Spectator (WS): 92
"This is distinctive, with lots of showy pain d'épices and blackberry reduction
offset by roasted apple wood notes and a strong graphite spine. Shows plenty
of flesh through the finish, featuring extra linzer torte and boysenberry notes
that course along, with nice buried grip."
