93/100 Punkte Wine Spectator June 30, 2018 Enticing, with green tea, ginger, toasted sesame, caramel and date flavors that glide through, with finely stitched acidity and a flattering flash of sweetness. Delivers understated elegance. Drink now.
96/100 Wine Spectator, December 2018 Gorgeous, with warm plum reduction and gently steeped raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors forming the core, all inlaid with warm ganache and smoldering tobacco accents. Very plush in feel, but has no lack of energy, as everything sails beautifully through the long finish. A late echo of anise completes the seduction. Best from 2035 through 2055.
96/100 Punkte James Suckling May 2018 Very complex with dried flowers and roses. Full-bodied, very layered and tightly wound. Chewy and powerful. Firm and off-dry. Needs five or six years to soften. Beauty. Try in 2024.
