4 stars "Dense, deep colour, rich, succulent blackcurrant fruit, violets and irises on the nose, balance and length, quite discreet at the moment, unforced concentration of fruit, all elegance and potential. Drink 2012-30. (18 points)" Best 2012-2030

"92-94 points: Proprietor Anthony Barton continues to fashion beautifully elegant yet powerful, masculine, virile wines meant for long-term aging. In addition, he exhibits a humility in pricing that is both refreshing and noteworthy. The outstanding 2004 comes close to equaling the spectacular 2000. It boasts a dense purple color as well as aromas of forest floor, underbrush, creme de cassis, new saddle leather, and background oak. There is superb intensity for a 2004, wonderful sweetness, and a surprisingly fragrant perfume. However, the beautiful bouquet does not mean this wine will be drinkable young as it will require 5-7 years of cellaring." Best 2010-2025

"90-93 points: Good medium ruby. Perfumed aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and violet. Suave entry, then lush, dense, concentrated and seamless, with terrific inner-mouth perfume and palate coverage. Subtly sweet flavors of black cherry, tobacco and minerals are framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes with very suave, horizontal, fine-grained tannins and terrific subtle mineral length."
