92 points Vinous: "High-pitched aromas of cherry, black raspberry, musky sassafras and fresh flowers, plus subtle vanilla and mocha undertones. Palate-staining dark berry, spicecake and candied licorice flavors display a smoky mineral nuance that lends nervy back-end lift and cut. Shows the depth of the vintage, but there's real energy here as well. Spicy and focused on the gently tannic finish, which leaves bitter cherry and candied violet notes behind."
