Raymond Chan 19.5/20 writes "Medium-full bodied, the fruit flavours of ripe black berries, black pepper, iron-earth and minerals are very tightly concentrated forming a refined, firm core. Earth, tar and floral detail add complexity, and the wine has succulence and richness. The extraction and tannin structure is very fine-grained and flowery in texture, balancing the sweetness, and the palate driven and flowing with great linearity. The wine is carried to a very long, lingering fine-and dry textured, black minerally finish. This is a Syrah of great elegance, with concentrated black fruits and minerally detail, and a refined, firm structure. Serve with slow-cooked game meat or with hard cheeses over the next 10-15 years."
