Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2006 Termanthia has a ripe, vivacious bouquet of blackberry, mint, lavender and a hint of iodine/violets that is attractive but takes time to open. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, supple tannins and crisp acidity. It has a honeyed tincture towards the finish even, though the harvest was actually earlier. This is the most mellifluous of the Termanthia wines, opulent but nicely controlled. Drink 2015-2025.  (Apr 2013)

Wine Spectator 95 points - This red is so thick and rich it's almost oily in texture, with exotic flavors of black fruit, game, dried herb and hoisin. Muscular tannins keep this structured, but give way to floral and graphite notes on the finish. A powerful wine with modern structure and distinctive character. Best from 2011 through 2020. 530 cases made. –TM (Jun 15 2009)
