93 Points and 25th in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2015 – “Well-crafted and suave, with refined flavors of raspberry tart, red plum and cherry pastry, matched to cardamom and savory spice notes. Silky tannins and a plush, creamy finish offer chocolate mousse accents. Drink now through 2022.” – Kim Marcus
91 Points “It is simply delicious” – Mark Squires
“This is a nice svelte, juicy example of the vintage with sweet spices – lifted star anise and cinnamon to its ripe raspberry, black cherry and plum fruit. Great balance; very drinkable. One of my favourite vintages of this wine so far.” – Sarah Ahmed
