WS92: "This has impressive density, with layers of fleshy plum, cassis, raspberry and blackberry fruit, stitched with perfumy tea, mulled spice and shiso leaf notes. The long finish really sails on, letting the fruit flesh out while a charred apple wood notes slides in underneath."
Rated 90 points by Stephen Tanzer`s International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Darker, more pungent fruits on the nose than the Terroir, displaying notes of licorice and black cardamom. Chewy and tightly wound, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and a sexy note of candied lavender. Brighter red fruits emerge with air and carry through a persistent, spicy finish. All of the old vines grenache that is usually destined to be bottled as Pure was included in this bottling."
