BURGHOUND.com NA FOR THE 2014 VINTAGE
(87-90) Once again there is a lovely sense of energy to the intense, delineated, and almost pungently mineral medium weight flavors that deliver fine persistence if only moderate depth on the otherwise balanced finale. Lovely and less austere than many youthful examples of Fixin.
BURGHOUND.com NA FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
This is markedly different as the expressive and cooler nose is much more floral with its violet, lavender and rose petal nuances that add a touch of elegance to the earth, cassis and plum scents. There is good punch to the markedly rich, sappy and palate coating flavors that possess a generous mouth feel before terminating in a mildly austere finish of reasonably good persistence.
Wine Spectator 91 FOR THE 2015 VINTAGE
Well-structured, juicy and bursting with energy, showing cherry, raspberry and spice flavors, with stony, chalky notes. Though this red is firm, the lively acidity drives the long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2021 through 2030. 420 cases made.
