94 points Vinous, Josh Raynolds: "Assertively perfumed scents of candied red fruits, incense, potpourri and exotic spices pick up a hint of smokiness in the glass. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, showing wonderful clarity and mineral lift to the bitter cherry, raspberry and rose pastille flavors. Takes a deeper, darker turn with air and finishes on a gently tannic note, delivering outstanding persistence and lingering black raspberry and spicecake qualities."
94 points PinotFile: "The aromas blossom beautifully over time in the glass, offering notes of darker cherry, boysenberry, violets and a hint of beneficial nutty and vanillin oak. Very suave in the mouth with gracious, silken tannins, becoming more engaging with time. Middleweight in concentration, with well-bred, saucy flavors of black cherry and black raspberry. Enviable balance, with lasting flavors on the finish. Irresistible when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle."
94 points Wine Enthusiast, Editor's Choice: "This vintage of Jessica is a rock star of a wine, a full display of winemaking craftsmanship at its best. Black-cherry, black-tea, tobacco and coffee flavors are seamlessly combined in a rich supple utterly captivating wine that will be hard to leave in your cellar for very long."
