90 Points Robert Parker
Very deep purple in color, the 2013 Buckboard Durif offers aromas of blackberry preserves, stewed prunes and dried mulberries with hints of fertile loam and cloves. Full-bodied, rich and powerful on the palate, it fills the mouth with blackberry and baking spice flavors framed by chewy tannins and just enough acidity, finishing with a pleasant, savory character.
