97 points James Suckling
This red shows lots of redcurrants and fresh flowers on the nose. It’s full-bodied with juicy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to resolve some of the tannins. Beautiful cabernet character, but already a joy to taste.
95 points Decanter
All the clarity and depth expected of GPL, with an added level of fragrance, elegance and purity. Simply wonderful in this vintage.
94 points Wine Enthusiast
This wine is dark and brooding, a powerhouse of tannins. It is seriously structured and could be too extracted and bitter except for the superripe fruit that is cut by lively acidity.
Barrel Sample: 92-94

A sleek, graphite-fueled version, with ample cassis and black cherry fruit racing along, picking up light tobacco, anise and bramble notes along the way. The fruit is vivid, presenting pleasant coiled up energy. Should age nicely. Best from 2020 through 2030.
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
