99 points "This opaque purple-colored effort was among the most backward wines in the tasting. Although subdued aromatically, it is enormously endowed, concentrated, and fabulous in the mouth. With high tannin as well as extraordinary blackberry and cassis fruit mixed with minerals and subtle new oak, it cuts a huge swath across the palate, but is not heavy. Give it another 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. It is a quasi-modern-styled Chateauneuf du Pape, but clearly has not lost its typicity. Issue #131 rating: 96" Best 2004-2031
