91 pts Wine Enthusiast

This wine is particularly lively and well-balanced, with a relatively light color, bright red-cherry aromas and tangy cranberry flavors that open up to riper plum and maple accents. It’s medium-bodied, moderately tannic and especially vivid in acidity.”

 

91 pts Doug Wilder, Purely Domestic Wine Report, Volume 5.3

“Notes of supple cherry, plum, sassafras, slate and caramel in the nose. The palate is a silky tobacco and cherry seamlessly put together offering beautiful texture.”
