Nose is a wicker basket of fresh strawberries! Nice aromas of cedar, spice and strawberry/cherry. Deep ruby in color. Flavors of plum and cherry with lovely spice and herb notes. Good balance of oak and tannin and nice structure with a long finish. Evolves nicely on the palate. Tight but balanced acid. 92 pts. 4/20/13

Cinnamon spice on the nose with crushed strawberry and raspberry. Also, dark cherry and pomegranate and even purple fruit and basil. On the palate, spice framed red and black bramble berry fruit. Some tartness and heat on the finish, but will integrate in time as these always do. Purple plum skin on the finish. 89 pts. 9/2/12 at Los Olivos tasting room
