Critic Notes

Attractive fragrance of summer berries, clarity and vigour plus elegance, balance and potential. Drink 2015-2025. Decanter.com

Score: 16.5-/20Decanter

Tasted three times, it was difficult to obtain the aromatic profile on the nose with blackberry and wild hedgerow. The palate has a succulent entry with furry tannins. Fine acidity, nicely balanced and rather foursquare on the dry, tobacco finish. Rigid and upright. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Score: 88-90/100Neal Martin

Ripe fruits with a solid backbone of oak and vanilla. Short finish. A bit disappointing. FINE+RARE

Score: 15.5-/20FINE+RARE

Deep dark crimson. Sweet, fresh and perfumed red fruit on the nose. Fresh but a bit disappointing on the palate. Plays the fresh fruit card well but perhaps rather slight and dry overall. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Score: 15.5-/20Jancis Robinson

Open knit, with bing cherry and mulled strawberry notes and a slightly airy finish. A bit too soft and light in the end. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Score: 84-87/100Wine Spectator

Also recommended, but no tasting note given. Apr 2014, www.robertparker.com

Score: 78-/100Robert Parker
