95-Points, Connoisseurs’ Guide—“Showing all the fruity depth and richness that has marked the best from Paoletti in the past, this riveting opus is rewardingly keen in every detail and displays an impression of careful polish that propels it to the very head of the class. Wonderfully well extracted yet always supple and fleshy in feel, it hangs on and on at the finish with intense fruit the unstoppable master of its ample tannins.” 92-Points, California Grapevine—“Medium-dark ruby color; very attractive, forward, rich, spicy, toasty, cedary, ripe berry fruit and black and black cherry aroma with prominent overtones of vanilla; full body; big, rich supple, ripe red currant flavors; well balanced and structured; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very appealing to drink now and also has good potential. Very highly recommended.” 91-Points, Wine Spectator—“A ripe, jammy, boldly flavored wine, laden with vivid blackberry, black cherry, plum and currant fruit that turns seamless, finishing with an elegant, not-too-tannic finish.”
