Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"This is tight and very fresh with linear acidity and creamy texture. Medium to full body and lots of brightness. Lovely, energetic finish. Lots of strawberry and smoked meat. Drink or hold." (Jan 2019)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This perfumed red displays light aromas and flavors of burning vine cuttings that complement the currant, cherry, sandalwood and floral notes. Firm and focused, with a mineral element emerging on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2032. 140 cases made, 50 cases imported." - BS (Oct 2019)

Allen Meadows' BurgHound:
"An overtly floral-suffused nose is both cool and airy while offering up well-layered aromas of dark currant, cherry, spice and once again plenty of earth influence. There is excellent delineation and vibrancy to the sleek, intense and focused flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality onto the delicious, balanced and youthfully austere finish. Some patience advised." (Apr 2019)
