Cascadia Wine Competition (March 2016)
93 points – PinotFile (September 2015)
“This wine has one of those noses you want to go on sniffing, featuring cherry, cranberry relish, graham and sous-bois. The cherry flavor bursts on the palate, caresses the mouth, and persists on the finish. A touch of red strawberry and spice box adds interest.”
92 points – Wine Enthusiast (December 2015)
“A fine follow-up to the inaugural vintage, this classically-styled wine is a medium-rose color, shading subtly into tawny around the rim. Flavors are an elegant mix of blackberry fruit, brown sugar and crème brûlée.”
90 points – Vinous Media
“Brilliant red. Aromas of redcurrant and dried cherry are complemented by allspice and cracked pepper. Juicy and tightly focused on the palate, with bitter cherry and allspice flavors unfurling slowly. A hint of pomegranate appears on the incisive, persistent finish, adding a refreshingly bitter edge”.
