Ratings & Reviews


91 Points - James Suckling:
"A firm and silky red with berries and a hint of chocolate. Some coffee, too. Medium body, firm yet polished tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now." - (September 11, 2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"A broad red, with black cherry, plum, wild herb, tar and earth flavors, backed by solid tannins. This lingers with a finish of saline and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2020. 800 cases imported." - BS (Issue Jun 15, 2017)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2013 Vintage):
"The shy nose eventually reveals suggestions of red berry, aromatic herb and a whiff of game. The bright simple palate offers red cherry, clove and an earthy note alongside mellow tannins. Kerin O’Keefe" - (3/1/2017)
