93 points "Emphasizing its gravelly crushed rock elements, this is firm, snappy and lively, with blackberry and raspberry fruit that finishes with a mouthwatering freshness. Drink now through 2023. Winemakers Notes --Following its traditional path, the Umino is generous and expressively fruity to the nose, with scents of Bing cherry, Black cherry, purple plum, crab apple syrup, candied orange peel, pink peppercorn, coriander seed and tobacconist shop-spice all making an appearance. It proves as plush and juicy in the mouth as expected, layering-on all the aforementioned fruits and spices, but it never feels weighty or overdone, as the focus holds and the zest brightens, while the intense flavor keeps the wines tannic underpinnings well in the background. The finish is long and flavor-packed, so everything is already amiable for current drinking, yet this wines very best showing is still to be a few more years down the road." Best 2012-2023

93 points "Dark ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of candied dark berries, violet and cola, with exotic allspice and star anise nuances adding complexity. Stains the palate with vibrant black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that show excellent clarity and focus. Supple and sweet on the persistent finish, which strongly echoes the allspice and dark berry qualities" Best 2014-2018
