89 points "‘The Footbolt offers a deep ruby/purple color in addition to scents of black currants, licorice, roasted meats, and spicy herbs in its well-made, deep, medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic style. This effort will benefit from another year or so of bottle age, and should keep for 7-8.’"
