Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal
rated this wine as 89/100
with the following review:
Light florality, menthol, forest floor, old wood, black cherry pit, black currants, hint of raspberry. Great wine, don’t know how much past 2011-2012 it can go, unless the oak dissipates. Drink now. I'm 89 on this wine. (ottawawinejournal.com)

reviewed this wine as follows:
This dark, ruby red wine is full bodied, fruity to integrated and with fuller aromas of blackberry, black cherry and lighter notes of pine, vanilla and oak. This wine is great to drink now and should remain until at least 2015, tannins are refined but near 1 hour decanting is necessary for the flavours to come out. It is not very aromatic, has a medium to long finish and reminds me of a nice Ripasso of similar value, due to its full taste originating from grape skins. Reading other reviewer’s comments, it is clear to me that either the bottle I had was quite different or the wine is evolving quickly as I have not perceived animal nor “bretty” notes. My impression: NICE. Tasted Mar/10.
