Winemaker's Notes

A reserved and relatively cool nose of wild red berries, game, underbrush and crushed herbs introduces earthy, intense and impressively broad scaled and powerful flavors that are dense, balanced and vibrant and really stain the palate on the explosively long finish that is youthfully austere. A stunner that should age beautifully.

91-94 Wine Spectator

93 Burghound

"Good medium red. Medicinal dark cherry, blueberry and a minty nuance on the nose. Juicy and precise, with the minty, menthol coolness giving shape to the cherry and mineral flavors. Young and quite primary, finishing with firm structure and excellent cut and length. This is 13.8% natural alcohol but I never would have guessed it."
-International Wine Cellar 89-92
