96 points ""Very exciting firm, structured nose with a savoury, spicy density and bright, vivid fruit. The palate is super-concentrated with lovely forward fruit coupled with tight tannic spicy structure. Quite sweet. Bold and intense. Excellent 96/100" wine anorak"

91 points "This is the best Noval made in three decades and is still fairly reasonable in price considering the quality. It is powerful, rich and fruity on the palate -- almost raw. Medium ruby, with coffee and plum aromas, full-bodied, with sweet tea, coffee and plum flavors and medium tannins. It will improve with age. –JS ('89) (WS-91)"
