93-95 points. There rusticity here, unlike other vintages. Not a bad thing, just different. Tannins are not as refined as 14 nor 15. Will be interesting to see its ageing curve.

Roy nailed this vintage and while still sooo young, its balance and grace is truly impressive. Sweet red berries, dark plums and black cherries jumps from the glass and are complimented on the palate by wonderfully handled tannins and juicy acidity. Will age gracefully.

Easy 96+ stuff. Great nose with absolute purity, flows into a super charged palate with an age worthy structure. Best after 2020.

Soft but big round and running dark fruit running streams of cherries well balanced.

Really enjoyed this wine. Probably better on Day 2, but mainly because it was too cold at first which muted the nose. Has a bit of tannins but it’s a deep, dark luscious sip.
