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

Pure red fruit, pepper, interesting how the Cabernet is ripe yet not overbearing. Some baking spice and a note of vanilla on the finish, but incredibly focused. Candied flowers also present Could even go another year or two, but really why wait, seems to be at it’s peak. Drink now. 89 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Bright red. Redcurrant, cherry and white pepper on the nose. Sweeter raspberry on the palate, with silky tannins and good mineral lift. Reminds me a lot of pinot noir. Finely etched red fruits linger on the sweet, spicy finish. This is pretty seductive, and ready to drink. Score – 90. Source: Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar
