Wine Enthusiast Review | 92 Points:
"Plush, full and warm, this is an immensely attractive wine now, though it should cellar well through 2021. Dark, intense notes of berry preserves, menthol, curing spice and vanilla bean all mingle harmoniously on the nose and palate. Lush and mouthfilling, it is carried by a full structure and a crushed-velvet texture. Notes of muddled black berries and sweet spice linger long on the finish."
Vinous.com Review | 91+ Points:
"Deep ruby-red. Riper and deeper on the nose than the 2008 version, offering scents of black fruits, spicecake, smoked meat and coffee. Seriously concentrated and youthfully backward syrah with rich black fruit and spice flavors firmed by a strong acid/tannin spine. More flamboyantly ripe and expressive on the nose than the 2008 bottling, but this very tight, promising wine will need four or five more years in the bottle to unwind." -- Stephen Tanzer
