The Wine Advocate (Lisa Perotti-Brown) – Rated 94 Points
“Deep garnet colored the 2001 Hill of Grace offers aromas of warm red currant black cherry compote blackberries and dried Provencal herbs with an earthy undercurrent. Full rich and well-structured in the mouth it has crisp acid and a medium to firm level of rounded tannins and finishes long with up-lifting herbal notes. Drink this one now to 2025+.”   Tasted April 2013.

The Wine Spectator (Harvey Steiman)- Rated 95 Points
“Supple, round and distinctive for the way it balances gamy, meaty notes with rich fruit and spice. Offers black cherry, dark plum and clove character in abundance, while keeping its elements in harmony. Really stretches the flavor spectrum. A very special wine. Best from 2010 through 2025.”
