93 points "Rated: 93 by Stephen Tanzer, May 12, 2012 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and spice, complemented by a very ripe chocolatey quality. Broad, lush and ripe on the palate, a step beyond the winery's other 2009s in texture and depth. Wonderfully fine-grained wine in the style of the year, with ripe cassis and chocolate flavors offering early appeal. The wine's dusty, ripe tannins spread out to saturate the palate. Accessible now but with the stuffing and structure to age for 15 or 20 years." Best 2014-2026

93 points "Wine Spectator 93 points (Sep 12 2012) Bold, rich and concentrated, focused on a dense core of blackberry, cherry, red and black licorice. Firmly tannic and chewy, with subtle earthy notes at the foundation. Best from 2014 through 2026.—J.L." Best 2014-2026
