CRITICAL ACCLAIM

JS99, James Suckling

"Incredible, reserved ripeness and depth already evident on the nose after one whiff, offering plum, cedar, rose hip, sandalwood, and licorice. Full-bodied with superb depth of fruit and an abundance of polished tannins that give the wine poise and grace, even though it’s long and powerful. The quality of the tannins are exceptional. Sheer and refined. This comes from the center of Cannubi. Aged five years in Stockinger cask. Better after 2026."

 

WS94, Wine Spectator

"This is mellowing, with red fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry shaded by eucalyptus, tobacco and green tea. Almost feels ready to enjoy at the outset, then the dense tannins kick in on the finish. Everything comes together nicely in the end. Best from 2024."
