Wine Spectator: 90pts
A pure note of black cherry and hints of eucalyptus and chocolate pudding are underscored by a subtle streak of spicy minerality in this sculpted red. Medium- to full-bodied, with a fresh, lingering finish. Drink now through 2023. 6,000 cases made.–AN, Aug 2016
Bright red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of red cherry, minerals, underbrush and licorice. Light and lively for such a big wine, with only a trace of alcohol-derived warmth emerging on the back end. Well done. (14.5% alcohol)

James Suckling: 91pts
Dark plums, some blackberry essence, ivy, bark and hints of dust. Plenty of crunchy fruit on the full-bodied palate, which is dense but nicely lifted by some refreshing acidity. Chewy finish. Drink or hold.
