89 points "(15.6% alcohol): Medium ruby. Dark berries, orange peel and earth on the nose. Dense and sappy but quite tightly wound, with black fruit and licorice flavors dominating. Doesn't have quite enough mid-palate pliancy and flesh to support its serious tannins, and thus a tad dry on the back today. Will this come into better balance with aging?"

92 points "Impressive for a 2010, offering powerful fruit, focus and pinpoint acidity. Aromas of boysenberry and spicy cinnamon lead to concentrated blackberry, mineral and smoky anise flavors. Tannins firm up on the finish. Cellar for now. Best from 2015 through 2021. 500 cases made. –TF" Best 2015-2021
