91 Points & #72 Top 100 of 2015 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Bright and racy in feel, with high-pitched red currant, cherry and raspberry coulis notes, laced with violet, white pepper and chalk details. The long, youthfully taut finish should settle in with mid-term cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2023. 5,000 cases made." – JM (Nov 15, 2015)

96 Points & #16 of Top 100 of 2016 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Unctuous and ripe, showing mouthfilling flavors of almond cream, ginger, heather honey and apricot, this will need time to unwind fully, but when it does, expect more pineapple, maple and singed orange notes, as this has some depth and power in reserve, as well as more than enough cut for balance. A beauty in the making. Best from 2018 through 2038. 2,833 cases made." - JM (Mar 31, 2016)

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"95–97. Barrel Sample. The wine is ripe yet stylish and pure. It has a great balance between bright acidity and rich fruitiness. It is a very fine wine with great aging potential, as it hints at the more opulent future to come." - Roger Voss (4/1/2016)

91 Points - James Suckling:
