92 Points - International Wine Cellar
"Vivid red. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, blood orange, minerals and Asian spices. Lithe and silky in the mouth, with terrific energy and a light touch to the flavors of red berries, spicecake and flowers. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and excellent clarity. This pliant, youthfully taut wine has the nervy spine for aging".

"This wine modulates between sunny red fruit and smoky tannin. The aroma melds red berries, cranberries and star anise spice with dark, earthy scents of roots and smoke. The potent tannin and bright fruit continue to battle a day after the wine is opened, suggesting this needs several years in bottle to fully mature"
