“From the Comte von Neipperg, his wines from this over-achieving estate always deliver an aromatic fireworks display of cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, roasted herbs, black olive, cassis and sweet kirsch. The 2005 has all that as well as ripe, well-integrated, velvety tannin, and full body in a sexy, luscious, heady style to drink now and over the next 10-15 years.” (6/2015) 94 points, Robert Parker for The Wine Advocate

“This is exotic, with mushroom, blackberry and meat aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of decadent fruit character. Long and beautiful. The best from this estate since 1990.” (3/2008) 93 points, James Suckling

“Good deep red. Truffley aromas of raspberry, mocha and earth. Rich, roasted red fruit and woodsmoke flavors sexed up by sweet caramel. Fleshy, round and sweet but with serious stuffing too. I find this very easy to taste today, but Stephan von Neipperg notes that it has the tannic structure of the ’98 made here.” (5/2008) 91 points, Stephen Tanzer

“Tasted single blind at Southwold. This has a sweet ripe plumy nose, blueberry and cassis – a touch of Barossa. Nice lift. Very ripe black fruits, quite spicy, quite sharp and disjointed with a slightly grippy, tarry finish with a certain finesse. It actually improved in the glass by the time I returned ten minutes later. Drink 2010-2025.” (07/2009) 90+ points, Neal Martin
