James Suckling 95/100

“Lots of sweet blue plums, blueberries, wet stones, stemmy herbs and mild spices on the nose. Full-bodied with fine tannins. Ample, expansive but focused at the end. Smartly structured with a good amount of fresh, chalky tannins, showing balance, brightness and energy. Flavorful and lingering finish, but nothing heavy here. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.” – Zekun Shuai, senior editor
