Sweet blackberry fruit on the nose with some pencil lead, smoke, brownie, chocolate, game, and black pepper notes that gain an intense leather, show polish tone and spicy truffle nuances. Silken on the palate with wonderfully bright acidity and superb tannin that keep this tight and focused. Just slightly dense and chewy and certainly not fully open this has deep, rich fruit with notes of plum, black cherry, black currant and a hint of roasted pecan adding a savory edge. There are soft background notes of vanilla and bay leaf and a subtle menthol top note . Very zesty in the mouth and finishing with intense inner mouth perfume of violet pastille, cinnamon, mint, and licorice. A delicious wine with significant upside potential and the most penetratingly aromatic finish! 94pts

Deep purple straight to the rim. Blackberry and plum reveal themselves on the nose along with bright notes of mint and wild herbs and a touch cedar. Beautifully textured on the palate the tannins are supple and nicely integrated offering nice balance and structure. With a touch of chocolate adding complexity on the finish this is a very well-made wine showing wonderfully right now. Alex Shaw.

"The 2005 Mister Moreved Alta Mesa vineyard exhibits a blueberry, raspberry, truffle oil-filled personality, wonderful ripeness, medium to full body, good acidity, and a dry, heady, firm finish. It is another stunning effort to consume over the next 5-6 years. These are all creative, individualistic wines that reveal considerable soul and character. One has to admire the wacky art on the label as well as the non-conformist blends. Most important from a consumer’s perspective, the wines are very interesting and deliver loads of pleasure. All of them possess terrific aromatics." ~Robert Parker's wine Advocate #172

"The brilliant 2006 Elevation Sensation Alta Mesa vineyard exhibits notes of creme de cassis, kirsch, blueberries, licorice, and truffles. full-bodied, powerful, and silky-textured, it is stunningly complex with notes of flowers, red and black fruits, earth, and spice. rich, layered, full-bodied, and built like a skyscraper, this beauty should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.
