97 Points - James Halliday "A full-bodied wine of remarkable intensity, filling every crevice of the mouth with a pure stream of cassis and mulberry fruit, oak and tannins dutifully lending support, but remaining in their place, simply reinforcing the inherent elegance of the wine."
96 Points - James Halliday "A single vineyard planted in '78. 55% new oak for 14 months. Redcurrant, blackberry, violets and bay leaf bouquet; characters of cedar and chocolate on the palate are oak-derived, but sit seamlessly within the wine as well. The fruit and the tannin filling the mouth expansively."
