Estate Soul of a Lion, 2012
Rated 96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
In the glass, the 2012 Soul of a Lion appears inky-black with a velvety core; however, on the nose, you are treated to the lightness of fresh violets, crushed blueberries and cocoa.
Estate Soul of a Lion, 2016
Rated 94-96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Soul of a Lion is a balanced, elegant and rich wine from a superb vintage that allowed for extended hanging. The smooth and silky tannins are magnificantly integrated with the fruit and acidity through it's extended finish.
