"An excellent wine: luscious and full bodied, with rich, ripe fruit character and evident new oak. Tastes of black cherry, boysenberry, and raspberry. Excellent."-- Restaurant Wine Magazine                

 

88 "Ripe and juicy, brimming with fresh blackberry, black cherry and wild berry flavors that turn spicy and peppery on the finish." -- Wine Spectator                  

 

"Medium ruby; attractive, fresh floral, assertive, herbal, slightly briary, slightly jammy, strawberry fruit aroma; medium-full body; forward, rich, fleshy, somewhat lush, bright, sweet berry and cherry fruit flavors; medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Above-average quality. Very easy and enjoyable to drink now. Very highly recommended." -- California Grapevine
