The color is deep, intense and dark with violet tones. On the nose it reveals its unique complexity. This wine is elegant, rich in black and red fruits, with a touch of the underbrush and with an aftertaste of spices such as green and black pepper and balsamic hints. In the mouth, this wine is rich, complex, powerful and balanced with elegant tannins. The aftertaste is long and spicy.

97 Points James Suckling: Aromas of blackberries, tar and bark. Complex. Full-bodied with ultra-fine tannins that spread across the palate. Fresh and vivid. Seamless. 50% merlot, 35% cabernet sauvignon and 15% syrah. Beautiful to drink now, but will be even better in three or four years.

95 Points Robert Parker: This wine marks a 20th anniversary since the first vintage was produced in 1999. The Il Borro 2018 Il Borro is 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah. Previous vintages also had some Petit Verdot, but that variety was removed because it left too strong a mark in a changing climate. The vines were also converted over to guyot for the same reasons. The wine shows the mint and spice of Merlot and Syrah, respectively, and the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon.

93 Points Wine Spectator: A supple, almost opulent red, with a core of ripe raspberry and kirsch. Features floral, wild herb and iron notes that provide depth, and the firm structure keeps this buoyant and well-defined. Reveals hints of vanilla that leave a spicy impression on the long finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
