93 points - Vinous
91 points - Wine Enthusiast
Dark and intensely deep in color, this powerful wine has layered aromatics of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry compote, allspice and bay leaf coupled with more savory notes of beef bouillon and hoisin. The palate follows suit in its dark brooding nature with a full body, dusty tannins, and a slate-like mineral texture. Aged in 100% French oak, 22% new, in a combination of large format 400L puncheon and 228L barrique.
