Reviews 93 points Wine Advocate "...unwinding in the glass to offer up a youthfully reserved bouquet of blackberries, cherries, plums, grilled game bird, rich soil and smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, rich and voluptuous, with a succulent core of fruit, vibrant fruit flavors and a fine-grained framing of structuring tannins. (WK)" 93 points John Gilman "The bouquet is deep, pure and sappy, offering up a fine blend of black cherries, black raspberries, dark chocolate, venison, a fine base of soil, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and loaded with pure fruit at the core, with excellent transparency, ripe, suave tannins and a very long, complex and vibrant finish. (JG)"
