BOW (8)

Parker (90)

This uncompromising property has turned out a backward, forbiddingly tannic wine that, even in this very opulent and flamboyant vintage, will need a minimum of 10-15 years of cellaring yet keep for 40 or more years. Opaque black/purple, with notes of crushed rock, white flowers, graphite, blueberry and cassis, the wine is tight and needs to be coaxed from the glass. It is medium to full-bodied, with an excruciatingly tough-textured finish. Everything is here, and the wine is set for a long life, but it is not the least bit charming and certainly won’t be for at least another decade.

Winespectator / James Suckling (88)

This is trying hard, with obvious toasty spice joining sweet vanilla, blueberry and raspberry notes, all carried by more exuberant toast through the finish. Ambitious, but not quite polished and integrated.
