"The restrained application of wood this displayed when I last reviewed it in 2013 (see herein) remains unobtrusive if not invisible and does not impede the expressiveness of the still ultra-fresh and gorgeously spiced black cherry and cassis infused nose. There is fine richness and power to the surprisingly supple middle weight flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density before culminating in a focused, exquisitely balanced and highly persistenct finish. This is already really quite harmonious and while it still has plenty of upside development potential remains, the outstanding balance and relatively fine-grained tannins could easily allow this beauty to be enjoyed now if desired. Tasted several times recently with consistent notes." -Allen Meadow
"For me, the Malconsorts has the finest delineation on the nose, almost pixelated red fruit with hints of white peach and crushed stone. The palate is very well defined with tensile tannins, great tension with clarity with amazing precision on the finish. Stunning...but what else did you expect" -Neal Martin
"Savoury and rich at the same time. Very majestic and easy to like, not reserved admittedly – quite a sweet style – the antithesis of de Vogüé for example. Lovely stuff – very easy to like."
