94 points Vinous: "An assertively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, potpourri, incense and Asian spices, and a vibrant mineral nuance builds as the wine opens up. Juicy, penetrating and focused in style, offering palate-staining raspberry, bitter cherry and rose pastille flavors that are energized by blood orange and white pepper notes. Shows superb clarity on a long, spice-laced finish shaped by smooth, harmonious tannins."
Expressive bright cherry and dried rose opens up, with delectable blood orange accents. Energetic red fruit and savory ribbons pulse throughout, with depth and power through the finish. Beautiful acidity, tons of dry extract -- this wine will age a decade with ease but hot damn is it drinking well right now. Goodfellow likens it to a Jaguar E-Type convertible: lithe, powerful, sleek, rich, classic. A superb, old vine site in the Dundee Hills, Durant was planted in 1973 and 1993. A stone's throw from the original Eyrie Vineyard, below White Rose, and adjacent to Domaine Drouhin and Archery Summit (not too shabby a neighborhood).. - Marcus
