JAMES SUCKLING: "A solid Pierre with chocolate, hazelnut, berry and orange peel aromas and flavors. Full to medium body. Juicy tannins and fruity. Poised and fresh finish."
DECANTER: "A dark fruit, liquorice and cola-touched nose. Ripe and fleshy, this has grip and density to the cool blue fruits. Although the tannins are on the prominent, mouthfilling side, this is nicely sleek and full, maintaining balance and persistence from start to finish. Good stuff with grip, generosity and a dark richness."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Dark in color, the wine shows off its flowers, black cherries, licorice, espresso, and plums easily, Supple, creamy, silky, and lush, the polished finish carries on with its layers of dark, luscious fruits, and toasty oak. Drink from 2025-2040."
