Vinonotebook on the 2016 vintage:
This wine has incredible immediate appeal: Smoked ham hocks, spice nibs (primarily clove, anise), plum, bluestone/gravel, blueberry and creamy malt. Cereal, crispy corn kernels, bacon, pan jus, dried blueberries and cigar smoke. Smooth, even, refined palate with dried fruits, purple flowers and that slightly savoury, rustic meaty goodness. The long finish of gossamer tannins promote good chary protein matching drinkability. Delicious. Rating: 18/20

Halliday on the 2016 vintage:
It's more about freshness and character than it is about depth or any great intensity, which is fine in itself but might make the price a bridge too far. It tastes of leather and assorted fresh berries and has an easy-going, juicy appeal. 92pts. Drink by 2025.
