Bitter apple, oil, shale, and juniper show lovely purity, freshness and intensity on the nose, with hints of gamey meats and nuanced, slightly smoky dark berry fruit topped with a hint of tar and lots of wild plum. In the mouth this is a bit rustic with firm but well judged tannins, but the masses of wild plum up front, followed by pure bright acidic red berry fruit, quickly buffer the tannins. This is a superbly honest wine with just has a touch of richness on the back end, and while it really has a drop dead gorgeous nose, it is a bit simple in the mouth. Still I would willingly drink a lot of this. 89 points

Dark ripe fruit on the nose with fine tannins and a silky structure. Densely framed deep, rich dark fruit with shapely tannin support that all make for a great mouthfeel. Nicely balanced. - Tasted at winery 4/21/10
