|Wine Enthusiast: 94|
|This complex and well-balanced wine seamlessly blends black fruits, oak spices and a beefy accent on a full body backed by moderate tannins. It feels velvety, almost silky, but has the structure to improve with age. Best from 2025. Cellar Selection.|
|James Suckling: 92|
|A very soft and friendly red with plum and blackberry character. Medium body with medium firm tannins and a delicious finish.|
