91 points "Color: dark; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: black berry; Acidity: lively; Sweetness: dry; Body: firm; Finish: medium; Overall: pleasant; Good structure, medium tannins, nice flavors of blackberry and cocoa. Not like a Rioja Tempranillo. Bigger and less fruit forward. I liked it a lot and will definitely seek out more, though the price is a little steep. "

92 points "This wine has been interesting since it first came out, and with the commanding 2006, it takes its place as one of the best Tempranillo-based red wines in California. It’s bone dry, and while it’s a little soft in acidity, the tannins are so refined that the wine retains structure. Flavor-wise, it’s all cherries, cedar and rich, earthy mulch notes. - S.H.
