89 points "Nose: fragrant; Aromas: spicy; Body: firm; Finish: persistent; Overall: bold; Really opened up after sitting in a decanter for a while. Spicy, good fruit, solid tannins that are not too fine-grained, keeping its strong, muscular character."

91 points "Lovely aromas of black cherry confiture and freshly shaved vanilla bean lead to a ripe, supple palate of cassis, plum and mineral, shaded deftly with a dash of spicy toast. Shows nice grip. Drink now through 2008. 19,000 cases made. –JM " Best -2008
