Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Cassis and purple fruit at the core with the brooding briars lifting slightly since my last bottle, consumed in 2009. This has withstood the extra year in bottle magnificently, I think better, allowing the fruits to meld (and dissipate a little) and the acid to become more prominent. Blueberry/iron coming through better, with touch of lavender that almost perfumes the fruit on the mid-palate, as well as a hint of sandalwood on the finish. Sweet tannins. The wine needed this long to calm down, but could have gone another year. Unfined, unfiltered, still a steal for the price. Score, 89+. (ottawawinejournal.com)
