19.5/20 Elmundovino: "Color surprisingly young It smells like woodcock, ferric. Very complex, meaty, very balsamic. In the mouth it still has noses, wet earth, it has fruit. It is very long".
95/100 Robert Parker: "Deep cherry red in color, it offers up a splendid perfume of mature dried fruit aromas and other savories. Silky and elegant on the palate, it displays ample ripe, complex, lingering flavors and a seamless finish".
95/100 Decanter: "It possesses a stunning nose of musk and shoe polish. Though clearly mature, the palate is in great shape with sweet cedar tinged red fruits, apricot, beeswax and a touch of truffle oil. The tannins and freshness are terrific providing ample structure and density. Quite extraordinary".
