John Gilman 88 points! "Though this is one of the hardest hit cuvées in the cellar by the frost damage of 2016, the wine was showing no ill effects and was really singing at the time of my visit. This is quite a sappy example, offering up a lovely bouquet of black cherries, cassis, bitter chocolate, woodsmoke and a fine base of dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and generous at the core, with moderate tannins, tangy acids and good balance and grip on the sneaky long finish. A fine example. "
