Robert Parker - 88 See more...
The 2012 is a successful effort once again from Château Gloria, a property that has been on a major qualitative roll for decades. Dense ruby/purple in color, it has sweet, juicy, blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, no real evidence of any oak, but a fleshy, open-knit, meaty mouthfeel. Excellent purity, low acidity and ripe tannin all characterize this beautiful wine
Wine Spectator - 89 See more...
Juicy plum and blackberry fruit is spiked with an overt savory edge that runs through the finish, picking up pepper, bay leaf and juniper notes. This has energy, but finishes with more chewy austerity than flesh. Might soften somewhat with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2021. 15,000 cases made.
James Suckling - 88 See more...
This red shows black cherries with cacao and spicess on the nose, following through to a full body, silky tannins, bright acidity and a mouth-watering finish. A little hollow on the mid-palate. Better in 2017.
Wine Enthusiast - 93 See more...
92–94. Barrel sample. Solid and concentrated, this wine certainly shows great dryness as well as fruit. It has power and density, and a texture that balances new wood as well as the fruitiness.
