Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Florality has dissipated quite a bit over time. Not to say that it hasn’t completely vanished, but it is more integrated into the red cherry, cranberry, and red currants on the palate. Red briars beginning to develop. It can really go 1 or 2 more years but it would suffer from a rather precipitous decline. The problem is that while they celebrate that there is no oak in the wine, it actually could have benefitted from a few months in there to reinforce the tannic structure in order to prolong its ageability. Either way, this is the time to drink this wine, at its prime. Drink now. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
