        Reviews:

        • Wine Advocate: Fabulous peppery nose, so much floral and wild garrigue character, lots of red plum. The palate has silky sweet fruit at its core, but flooded with basil and bay leaf, meatiness and again that peppery spice. The fruit stays focused and linear at its heart, the taut acid framework and the big, powerful dry tannins give this immense pleasure and a suggestion of great age ability.
        • James Suckling: Solidly built, with a core of steeped plum and bitter cherry fruit inlaid with singed mesquite, mineral and savory notes. Concentrated but showing good cut through the finish, as the mineral detail pierces the fruit.
