92 pts Wine Enthusiast

The inviting shade of ruby red is quite light in the glass, but this wine offers a full experience, starting with a nose that combines tart cranberry with orange rind, Kalamata olive and eucalyptus. It’s bright, fresh and tart on the palate, with green olive, crushed herbs, underripe raspberry, cranberry-orange juice and sea salt flavors.


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

“The nose is a firm iron and herb infused red fruit, plum, alluring spice and tomato. The palate is beautifully proportioned showing both strength and finesse. The core is bright red fruit and well-integrated herb and mint”
