Dark with earthy,  floral and powerful black fruit aromas framed with a hint of pencil lead. This is intense, smooth, polished, and focused. It’s a mouth filling wine, jammy and rich with dark cherry fruit, nice herbal and floral accents, all wrapping up with a big fruity finish. A very generous and modern styled wine. 89pts
Lovely aromatics all floral and red fruit driven with sour accents and a light milk chocolate edge. Bright, sapid and focused in the mouth with mineral edged sour cherry and wild raspberry fruit supported by modest yet austere tannins and decent acids. This all comes together nicely on the modest finish, small scaled but beautifully done. 89pts
Funky on the nose, and  stemmy, and savory in a barn kind of way with hint of black tea. Rich in the mouth and chewy with tannins. This is rustic but exuberantly so, with gorgeous earthy fruit, bright acids, and  soft flannelly tannins blending richness and tension in the mouth and through the moderately long finish. 89pts 
Deep macerated herb, wild berry, and mossy aromas slowly emerge on this gently perfumed nose. Smooth and rich in the mouth and packed with fine tannin and good acids, there’s lovely depth to the fresh and slightly austere fruit here. A bit rich, dark and earthy but with good energy in the mouth this finishes with sour cherry and fine earth notes. 89pts
A bit leafy on the nose floral with hints of oak, camphor, and something a little shiny. Bright fruit, blackberry and nice creamy cherry fills the mouth along with lots of herb and gentle mineral details. This has good acids and soft tannins in a  rich and pretty powerful style that finishes on the short side. lovely fruit but the texture is a bit creamy at this stage of the game. Give it two years. 88pts
Leathery on the nose with complex aromas of camphor and fennel. Round, fruity yet taut on the palate with  big fresh red fruit, wild cherry and earthy spice flavors. This has focus and depth with very attractive ripeness and a refreshing counterpoint of austerity on the moderately long finish. 88pts
Heady scents of incense and candle wax greet the nose followed by slightly floral, reticent aromas. This is a bit tough on entry, firm and nicely tannic in the mouth with incisive mineral accents to the sliced cherry and earthy fruit. Today it comes off as a bit foursquare but entirely agreeable with attractive minerality. Very well balanced and fairly perfumed on the finish, I’d look for this to improve. 88pts
Fruity and slightly exotic on the nose with hints of pomegranate and liquory black cherries. Smooth, rich and polished in the mouth with lots of blackberry and black cherry fruit streaked with herbal and astringent red fruit notes. This is pretty creamy, if powerful with an abundance of soft tannins that clip the finish.Creamy and powerful on the modest finish, 88pts
Lots of sweet cherry fruit greets the nose along with hints of leather and espresso. Quite rich with cherry fruit early on the palate this seems quite rich at first then strong acids kick in lending a mineral cast to the palate and driving the long, vibrant and modestly complex finish. 87pts
Macerated herbs greet the nose along with hints of dried pork sausage. Also very herb tinged in the moth, though with lots  of tart austere red fruits along with a bit of licorice. There’s a creamy edge to the red cherry fruit, covering soft acids and tannins that are present and a little spiky with some spice on the backend leading to a short finish dominated by small red fruits. A bit chunky in texture.  87pts
Floral on the nose with a lovely array of red spices, crushed flowers and almost peppery spice notes over dried beef and leather tones. This is a touch soft on entry but with admirably pure flavor of wild berry fruits, a little watermelon rind, and a touch of white pepper adding some detail. Good acids drive the modest finish, but the tannins here leave this a bit too supple in the mouth and while the aromas and flavors are attractive the texture is a bit nondescript.  87pts
Very complex on the nose with just a hint of mushroom and forest floor accenting the core of wild cherry in alcohol fruit. On entry this shows a snap of  cranberry, slightly jammy and high toned and slightly peppery. Fairly large scaled this is a bit chewy in the mouth with lots of fruit but after the nose it comes off as a bit simple. Friendly and approachable. 87pts
