What experts says  
  
17+. “Lovely soy sauce quality. Firm, hard tannin. Really young - will take its time.” 
 
  
89. “Offers cherry and raspberry flavors before the stiff tannins take over. There's a leanness to the chalky, minerally finish. Best from 2016 through 2028.”
  
  
91. "An expressive nose of a ripe and agreeably fresh mélange of red cherry and black raspberry is cut with warm earth nuances that continue onto the rich, round and quite fleshy flavors that possess good dry extract that coats the palate on the vibrant, balanced, detailed and persistent finish. Excellent quality here."
  
  
90. “A red cherry flavor and a rich texture show the ripe side of this plump wine. It has tannins and a touch of bitter chocolate. It’s already full and generous, but it does need to age for at least six years.”
