89 points "You can smell the pure beam of raspberry fruit this offers, and the palate follows through on that promise along with herb, mineral and cocoa notes. Tight and racy still, with the fruit giving way to the herbal, minerally side on the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2004 through 2006. 3,500 cases made." Best 2004-2006

2.5 stars "Dark color. Sweet and smoky nose. On the palate, rustic character with smoky and peppery flavors. Somewhat dry and alcoholic finish."
