| Wine Spectator 90 points (Jan 1 2010)
Rock-solid, with a juicy, muscular core of blackberry, black currant and fig fruit pushed by bacony toast and a lush, hoisin sauce-tinged finish. Has heft, but balanced too. Drink now through 2011. 1,500 cases imported. –JM
Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2010)
Aromas of Asian spices, violets, black currants, and blackberry; smooth-textured, some elegance.
