92 points "Beautiful aromas of blackberry, cherry and toasty cedar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with ultra-silky tannins and a long, long finish. All in harmony. Really fine for the vintage. Best from 2006 through 2010. 330 cases made." Best 2006-2010

"Last year's 95-point Wine Spectator surprise follows with another truly sensational wine. The nose just jumps out at you spicy, complex, wild cherry fruit, with hints of sage, leather, intriguing, seductive and inviting. On the palate the wine is broad, full-bodied and rich yet not heavy, it has an elegance, more like a lithe, muscular athlete, supple yet forceful and is full of the complex character evident in the nose yet is slightly plumier, meatier, warmer, sweeter. As the wine lies on your palate its incredible length begins to blossom, as you follow its ever lengthening finish seems to be depositing mineral character, iron like, focused, powerful and very, very long. This wine will be able to be drunk now with a couple of hours in a decanter but will continue to improve easily for another decade plus. Greg St.Clair K&L's Italian Wine Buyer"
