|2009: 92 Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Good medium red. Sexy aromas of earth, smoked meat and brown spices, with a hint of white peach. Spicier and more expressive than The Unnamed, showing gamey, savory and floral qualities but also a higher pitch to the middle palate that suggests it will unfold dramatically with time in bottle. Youthfully tight today but long on the aftertaste. Lots of potential here. Incidentally, I rated the 2008 In the Rocks 91 points a year ago but this summer it was a solid 93; in fact, I found myself raising my scores by a point or two for all of the 2008 Reynvaan reds"
2009: 92 Points - Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator: "Firm in texture, with tannins not obtrusive but tightly packed with the dark berry and licorice flavors. Hints at black olive and tar as the finish lingers expressively. Drink now through 2019. 550 cases made."
