92 Points! Vivid ruby-red. Very fresh, intense perfume of red berry liqueur, smoky minerals, licorice and Indian spices. Rich, concentrated and sharply focused, offering intense black raspberry, blood orange and floral pastille flavors lifted by juicy acidity and a spicy nuance. Finishes with sweet, harmonious tannins that fade smoothly into the wine's juicy, spice-accented fruit. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
92 Points! Beef jerky, dried mushrooms, black pepper, pencil lead, black olive and elderberry swirl into a memorable nose on this wine by professorial vintner Wes Hagen. It's incredibly alive on the palate, delivering soy and deeply tart cranberry-cherry juice flavors, and needs until late 2015 to emerge as an even more solid sipper. - Wine Enthusiast.
