“A very gracious wine with vibrant aromas of cherry compote, Asian spice and a hint of graham. On the palate, there is impressive purity of dark cherry and blueberry fruit flavors with a savory thread in the background. The interplay of fruit and savory elements give the wine a special credence. The tannins are suave, the oak is deftly integrated, the thirst-quenching, lengthy finish is fueled with vivid, tangy cherry goodness.”

92 points – Wine Enthusiast (December 2016)
“This very pretty wine is built upon soft, forward, ripe strawberry fruit, and dappled with details of cinnamon and baking spices. A touch of chocolate sneaks into the focused, lightly tarry finish, which is nicely balanced.”
