Jasper Morris – 89
Clear, fresh mid red; with some spice and white pepper on the nose. Fresh red fruit, low key yet pleasing, and ripe enough (not always the case in 2014). Easily accessible: this is already a pleasure to drink.
Vinous – 89
Medium red Aromas of raspberry and underbrush are complicated by a musky carnal quality and a note of mocha Offers lovely sweetness and breadth for a 2014 village wine, with brown spices dominating the palate Has the stuffing to buffer its tannins and finishes with very good spicy length.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2025
Burghound – 89
(Outstanding) A discreet application of wood serves as a neutral backdrop for the exuberantly fresh dark berry fruit, floral and earth scents. The rich, suave and appealingly energetic middle weight flavors possess fine volume while delivering solid depth and length on the relatively robust and firm finale. Moderate patience suggested.
