"A winning combination of sweet cherry, raspberry, sandalwood and spice flavors are supported by a fresh, lively structure in this appealing red. The rich, ripe profile envelops the dense tannins, but they remain present. Terrific fruit and spice accents mark the finish." (Feb 2012)
"Outstanding! This is notably more deeply pitched with a densely fruited nose featuring notes of both blue and black pinot fruit, earth, humus and a distinct mineral nuance that can also be found on the rich and generous medium-bodied flavors that possess both good size and weight, all wrapped in a stony and powerful finish. This is really admirably complex and I like the overall sense of harmony." (Jan 2011)
" Red-ruby. Sexy nose melds raspberry, minerals, game and underbrush. Wonderfully sweet but with firm minerality giving cut and definition to the harmonious mid-palate. In spite of its mineral spine, this is juicy and pliant wine. In a very pure and elegant style, finishing with excellent length." (Jan 2011)
