Η άποψη της Jancis Robinson MW
Food&Wine, Financial Times
Το κρασί έχει βιδωτό πώμα, είναι καλά συσκευασμένο και έχει αλκόολ 13,5%. Είναι συνολικά ιδιαίτερα νόστιμο - καμία από την απλή γλυκύτητα που μαστίζει πολλά από τα περισσότερο εμπορικά κρασιά. Θα μπορούσα να διακρίνω τις νότες πορτοκαλιού που η Τζούλια βρήκε στη μύτη, αλλά πιο εντυπωσιακό ήταν μια διαφάνεια τύπου Nebbiolo, ο ελαφρός χαρακτήρας του (από την επήρεια των φρούτων παρά του βαρελιού), καθώς και το γεγονός ότι πραγματικά "χτίζει" το τελείωμα του σε κάτι εντυπωσιακά επίμονο. Είναι ένα πολύ ιδιαίτερο κρασί που αναδεικνύει τα χαρακτηριστικά του Ξινόμαυρου πολύ καλά. Θα το έπινα οποιαδήποτε στιγμή μέσα στα επόμενα πέντε περίπου χρόνια και είμαι σίγουρη ότι θα συνεχίσει να γίνεται όλο και πιο ενδιαφέρον.
