Awards/Reviews

95 pts James Halliday
Open-fermented, 15% whole berries, short cold soak, 9-12 on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (26% new), two gold medals. Deep crimson-purple; resplendent in its generosity with plum and blackberry leading the juicy fruits, licorice, spice and soft tannins all singing the same song.

92 pts Vinous
Inky ruby. Pungent, spice-accented scents of fresh dark berries, licorice, cola, vanilla and smoky minerals. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black and blue fruit and cherry flavors that are complemented by a jolt of peppery spices. Becomes deeper with air with no loss of vivacity and finishes sappy and very long; smooth tannins add shape and gentle grip. — Josh Raynolds
