Added Jul 3 at 10:48pmBriary berry fruit and fresh baked berry tart on the nose. Baking spice, fresh violets, dried rose petals, blueberry and boysenberry pie filling. Slight cinnamon candy. Loads of red fruit aromas. Nice vibrant entry with good acidity up front. Ripe berry fruit juice with bramble fruits and a darker, blueberry and blackberry on the back palate. Nice hints of pepper and a dried green herb quality with slight rocky minerality. Everything is smooth, including the tannins, making this a nicely polished wine. Slight heat from the high alcohol, but relatively nice balance. 88 pts.

Added Jun 20 at 12:57amFirst open, lots of earth on the nose and some funk. With time and air, a chalky, cocoa powder nose of rich cherry fruit emerges. Dark chocolate and leather notes give way to floral tones. On the palate, it's rich and well structured. Dark cherry fruit intermingled with toasty cocoa and charred oak. Some hints of coffee as well. It retains great acidity and is very food friendly. Dry, but with round tannins. Tasty wine! 90 pts.

Added Jun 12 at 10:24pmTouch of heat on the nose with youthful acidity and aromas of cedar dust, ripe raspberry, strawberry and pomegranate with hints of crisp cranberry. Some light, herbal peppery notes. Tad hot on the palate due to both alcohol and high acid. Slightly abrasive, but should burn off with time. Pretty, aromatic red berry fruit with nice cedar notes. Flavors of currant, raspberry, cranberry and some red cherry. Nice flavor, but the heat takes away from the experience. Chilling it a touch might help, or simply waiting it out. 86 pts.

Added Jun 10 at 10:49pmNice apple and pear tart aromas with some fresh pie crust and baking spice accents. Luscious texture and has a creamy weight but retains a nice acidity to balance it and keep it vibrant. Tree fruit flavors with hints of apple, pear and some peach as well as hints of nectarine citrus and an ever so slight herbal note. Bright, crisp and well structured. Very tasty and drinking very well at 6 years! 92 pts. 6/9/13

Added Jun 5 at 12:29amLemon and lime blossom aromas with white flowers, slate minerality and slight petrol. Nice waves of tangerine. Nice body on the palate with well balanced acid, subdued to allow the ripe sweetness of the fruit to shine. Slate with a touch of salinity on the palate with an oil lantern quality. Tropical mango flavor with lime zest and sugared lemon. Some citrus hints also of nectarine. Nice, off-dry style with lots of terroir complexity with the fruit keeping it from being overly juicy. Best with cuisine. 85 pts.
Jun 4 at 11:06am
Added Jun 4 at 11:06amDusty cinnamon and sage on the nose with bramble berry fruit. White pepper, light Indian spices and black raspberry aromas with hints of blueberry. Zesty palate with lots of nice spice and cracked peppercorn. Briary berry fruit in tones of red and black with sage, bay leaf, Indian spice, cedar and hints of acai. Dusty and dry tannins with nice acid balance. Well constructed and rustic in style. Spice drives this so it's not jammy. 88 pts. 6/3/13

Added May 31 at 11:19pmChalky, dusty aromas up front on the nose. Red cherry and earthy, black cherry on the nose with toasty notes, hints of truffle, coffee grounds and some black currant. Some grilled thyme. Toasty on the initial palate. Still hearty tannins with cherry compote, chocolate shavings, plum, a slight hint of salted caramel and a nice earthy quality. I could simplify by saying it's liquid chocolate covered cherry, but that would be oversimplifying it. It has nice layers of fruit and earth and wood. Built for food. Good acid remains and I would estimate it will lay down for another few years and gain even more interesting qualities. Finishes dry and on a bitter chocolate note. 88 pts. 5/31/13
