Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Fruit leather and forest floor are decidedly earthy on the nose. Soft and fruitier in the mouth, ripe berries come alive within the velvety full texture. Blueberry concentrate and charred earth create a dark flavor profile that finishes incredibly smooth. (Jun 2016)
Wine Spectator 88 points - Solidly built and zesty, with notes of dried cherry, licorice and smoky cracked pepper. Drink now through 2022. 25,865 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Leather saddle wafts from the glass atop ripe cherry, blackberry jam and brown sugar. Tightly wound in tannin and oak, this wine becomes pleasantly juicy on the finish.
