Best of 2017 – Sip Northwest (October 2017)

96 points – PinotFile (September 2017)
“Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Welcoming aromas of fresh cherry, spice and rose petal. Upon entry, the wine engages with riveting and luscious black cherry, black raspberry and plum flavors accented with a charming dose of spice. A sophisticated wine that is truly special with impeccable balance, a seamless texture and a grand finish that lingers until the next sip. This collectible wine was even more seductive when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle when my wife and I eagerly polished it off.”

8/8+ – Talk-A-Vino (November 2017)
“Cherries, good acidity, layers, smooth, lavender-driven on the second day. Very polished, elegant, will evolve with time.”
