Wine Advocate

"95 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""As with all the 2011s, the 2011 Pingus is riper, with never-seen-before alcohol levels (15.5%), but the wine feels extremely balanced. As usual, the highly-selected grapes were fermented in 2,000-liter oak vats with indigenous yeasts and aged for 22 months in second-and third-fill barrels. It is ripe and exuberant, with notes of violets, spices (curry!), smoky peat and umami-like meat-broth aromas. The palate is full-bodied, glyceric with sophisticated tannins, but plenty of them, so they need to calm down a little. I believe there will be a lot of people who will really love this 2011, it's showy and exuberant. 6,000 bottles produced. Drink 2016-2020."" 8/14 #214"

Vinous Media

94 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Inky purple. An exotic, expressive bouquet displays scents of blueberry, black cherry, violet, licorice and Asian spices, with a subtle smoky nuance in the background. Offers an array of densely packed black and blue fruit and floral flavors that are enlivened by bright minerality. Shows outstanding clarity and energy on the intense, lingering finish." 09/13

James Suckling

"95 Points, James Suckling: ""The opulence of fruit in this is wine is impressive with dark currants, dried plums and berries. Big and powerful with so much dried fruit, black cherry and toasted oak. Rich and very long. A voluptuous wine from a hot vintage. Drink or hold."" 7/15"
