Wine Spectator 92
"A fresh, juicy cherry note is enlivened by spice and savory mineral elements in this lean yet firm red. Remains harmonious and persistent, featuring a long, spice-tinged aftertaste. Shows excellent potential. Best from 2016 through 2032. - Spectator (March 2013)"

James Suckling 93
"Very pretty aromas of sweet berries and roses with a hint of stems. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a silky textured finish. It's the wonderful mouthfeel that makes this such a delicious wine. Drink or hold. - jamesuckling.com (02/13)"

Wine Enthusiast 91
"Soft tones of toasted almond, cinnamon, nutmeg and espresso make for a bold and powerful bouquet. There’s ample fruit, presented as dried blackberry and cassis, that gives the wine the heft it needs to support the tight tannic structure and acidity. Sour cherry flavors drive the lively finish. — M.L. (5/1/2013)"
