92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Supple and expressive, plush in texture but not weighty, layering blueberry and currant flavors with hints of cream and green olive. Lingers easily. Best from 2018 through 2023. 12,566 cases made." -HS, 10/15/16

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Herb, pencil lead, plum and vanilla aromas are followed by smooth, soft blue-fruit flavors. It shows a beautiful sense of balance." -SS, 12/31/16
