95 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Wonderfully complex and enticing with dark berry, smoky bacon, toasted spice and roasted nut aromas, leading to a flavoursome palate displaying plump mouthfeel and delectable fruit flavours with a spicy undertone. Brilliantly complemented by juicy acidity and fine grainy tannins, making it a fabulous food partner. At its best: now to 2032.

92 Points - Nick Stock, James Suckling 

This is delivered with a wealth of summer berries and has plenty of fragrance. Really saturated and intense. The palate holds a deeply round mid-section with bold, ripe tannins sweeping through the finish. Impressive.
