92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2016 Rasteau (75% Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvèdre) is a big, ripe, opulent effort that’s packed with full-bodied notes of blackberries, crushed rock, new leather and lots of minerality. It has sweet tannin, and while already impossible to resist, it will keep for 7-8 years.”

《Jeb Dunnuck》 評分92分。
「2016年的拉斯托(75% 歌海娜和其餘的西拉和莫爾維德)是一款豪放、成熟、豐富的紅酒,充滿了黑莓、碎石、新皮革和豐富礦物質的濃郁口感。它具有甜美的單寧,雖然已經難以抗拒,但它還可以陳年7-8年。」
