What experts say  
  
16 "Dark black-cherry colour. Slightly bloody / iron note, a touch meaty. Rich, intensely juicy and soft on the palate. cordial-like dark-fruit concentration. Slightly sharp on the finish."
  
  
 
88 "The layers of raspberry coulis and crushed boysenberry fruit are studded with red licorice, carrying through the spice-tinged finish. A lingering hint of plum skin keeps this ever so slightly taut, graced with solid fruit. Best from 2015 to 2020."
 
  
  
16.5 "A noble combination of black berries, liquorice, cinamon and black pepper. The supple and generous palate offers structured and harmonious tannins. This powerful Pomerol has a bright future."
