Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Fresh, savory and supple in texture, delivering rose, cherry, plum, leather and wild herb aromas and flavors. Shows a hint of chocolate, but this is more about the purity of fruit. Rich and almost sumptuous, this red stays elegant, providing a vibrant structure for support. Fine length. Best from 2023 through 2043. 1,546 cases made." - BS (Issue Web Only - 2020)
