87 points - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, October 2016
The 2013 Talbot is missing some fruit concentration on the nose and consequently it seems a little dusty and dour. The palate is better: medium-bodied and providing more pleasure than the aromatics with red and black fruit, cedar and cigar box notes and quite driving acidity towards the finish that imparts freshness on the finish. If those aromatics can take flight in bottle, then this will deserve a higher score. It is a lightweight at the moment although Talbot does have a tendency to gain weight with age.
