92 Points - Wine Spectator
"An elegant, medium- to full-bodied red, this is long and supple, with fine-grained tannins married to a pleasing range of crème de cassis, fig cake and aromatic hints of espresso, wild sage, iron and smoke. Lingering, lightly spiced finish. Carignano with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2029. 8,333 cases made, 1,000 cases imported." -AN, 2018

91+ Points - Vinous
"Deep red-ruby. Red cherry, dark plum, spices and earth on the nose, complicated by grilled herbs and flint. Plush, sexy and deep, delivering layered flavors of strawberry, licorice, and dried flowers. This broad wine offers an exciting combination of size and fresh acidity. The very long, savory finish features youthfully dusty but ripe tannins." -IA, Mar/2018
