91 points "Packed with ripe fig, licorice and currant paste flavors, backed by cocoa and graphite notes. The dark, muscular finish has some serious grip, so cellar short-term to let it round into form. Best from 2008 through 2010. 4,585 cases made. –JM Wine Spectator ranked #99 most exciting wine of the year." Best 2008-2010
