90 points - Wine Spectator"Light in texture, displaying a gravelly edge to the raspberry and floral flavors, with fine tannins and a minerally lift to the finish. Drink now through 2018. (7/31/10)"Producer notes"This perfumed nose shows vanilla, spice and red fruit leading to a mouth of warm spice notes and blueberry. The finish is long with soft tannins."

Full of milk chocolate, star anise and ripe raspberries on the palate. The tannins are soft and approachable. A great find from Oregon.
