Parker 86-88 Points

While the 2009 is a good effort, this property has not yet returned to the form it possessed
in the seventies and early eighties. The cleanly made 2009 reveals notes of
dusty black currants, spice box, earth, and licorice, and a medium-bodied,
fresh, lively style. It just lacks the extra dimension encountered in most
2009s. Drink it over the next 10 years. (Tasted once.)

Spectator 92-95 Points

Spicy and beautiful with blackberry and currant character. Full and silky, with beautiful
fruit and a long finish.

Martin's Wine Journal 90-92+ Points

Tasted at a negociant. There is just a little over-ripeness on the nose here: blackberry, a
touch of prune and dried apricot/fruitcake, although the definition is fine.
The palate is medium-bodied with good grip, furry tannins, black fruit laced
with tar and cedar, good depth on the powerful, ripe finish. If this Meyney can
lose that tincture of sur-maturite on the nose (and instinct tells me it will),
then this could be the best Meyney in years. Bravo! Tasted March 2010.

16+/20 Points

Black red, deep,
quite leathery fruit, good smoky, fleshy flavours, ripe and broad with good
tannins. Drink 2014-20.
