92 points Vinous, Josh Raynolds: "Smoky dark berries, cherry cola and licorice pastille aromas pick up a suave floral accent in the glass. Pliant and seamless in texture; a core of minerality adds lift and focus to sappy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors. The smoke and floral notes come back steadily on a very long, penetrating finish that features dusty tannins and a late echo of sweet cola."
94 points James Suckling: Fresh and pretty wine with blueberry and mineral aromas that follow through to a full body, salty undertones and a long and flavorful finish. Deliciously salty aftertaste.Drink now or hold.

94 points Wine Spectator: "Taut, tart and vividly expressive, bursting with red berry flavors and overtones of spice and tomato leaf. The finish persists with relish and clear minerality. Needs time to settle, but has plenty to offer. Best from 2016 through 2022."
