Bright ruby-red. Fresh red berries, tea rose and allspice on the fragrant nose. Silky and seamless on the palate, with redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors conveying good tension and lift. Finishes nervy and long, with resonating spiciness and fine-grained, slowly building tannins. Score: 90 points -- Vinous, Aug 2015
To call it entry level does not do justice to the quality here-this would be reserve level at many wineries. A generous mix of blueberry and black cherry fruit rolls seamlessly through the fruit-driven core, annotated with barrel notes of cola, coffee and cream. Score: 91 points -- Wine Enthusiast, Jun 2015
