Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Good medium red. Sexy, complex aromas of strawberry liqueur, raspberry, iris, truffle, chocolate, mocha and menthol. Suave on entry, then full, lush, sweet and seamless in the middle palate, with subtle floral lift contributing to the impression of definition. Strong in extract and quite fine-grained in spite of its thickness. Finishes impressively long, with very suave tannins."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"Intense aromas of fresh mushroom turn to blackberry and plum, even meadow flowers. Full-bodied, big and soft, with loads of fruit and character. Caresses the palate."
