87 | Very deep conc'd colour, good hue; lots of oak, and slightly funky, full bodied, solid and tannic. Grippy, unbalanced, drying.

95 | A complete wine with good balance and harmony. I enjoy the mix of ripe fruits plus the refreshing leafy notes. The structure matches the fruit weight. A little warm. Bold. Some baked tones. Tannic.

94 | A big, bold approach. Black fruited; plum and cherry. Some fresh bay leaf. Sweet spicy oak. Again, question whether ripeness detracts from variety? But a plush, polished style

88 | over-extracted, its not Cab Sauv, dark dense and tannic mineral-driven finish firm tannins
