Press & Reviews

  • Score: 91 Vintage NA Wine Enthusiast“A 60-40 blend of Gaglioppo and Cabernet Sauvignon, this savory wine opens with aromas of pink peppercorn, tarragon and juniper. There’s ample weight and structure to the well-knit palate, displaying ripe red- and black-berry flavors speckled with pepper and herbs. The finish is rounded, balanced and lingering.” - Alexander Peartree Shelf Talker Full Review
