91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Light-footed, corralling savory blackberry and licorice flavors into a fine line, with peppery tannins underlying the long finish. Best from 2018 through 2024. 460 cases made." -HS, 2016

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Flavors roll from cranberry to sweet red cherry in a red-fruit riot. It was aged in 52% new and 24% one-year-old oak [sic], but it's unobtrusive and not especially toasty. The barrel time has begun to smooth out any bumps and rough edges, though a touch of phenolic bite remains. Drink from 2018 to 2022." -PG, 8/1/17
