"Still in barrel, the 2018 Ermitage Ex Voto continues to impress. Brown sugar notes accent cherries and raspberries on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is lush and expansive, delivering waves of pleasure on the mid-palate before ending long and silky." -Robert Parker
"Tar, oil, granite, thickness. Dense, compressed fruit but the tannins are very resolved already. Delicious meatiness coming through, and a long bitter-chocolate finish and no question of the complexity that lies in wait."
