  • Score: 86 Vintage 2014 Wine Enthusiast Rose, moist underbrush and camphor aromas mingle together in the glass. Reflecting the cool, wet vintage, the palate is rather lean, offering red cherry, orange zest and a hint of dried mint alongside firm acidity and dusty fleeting tannins that leave an abrupt, drying close.

  • Score: 87 Vintage 2013 Wine Enthusiast Leather, underbrush, menthol and moist soil aromas form the nose. On the palate, brisk acidity accompanies dried cherry, powdered sage and a hint of tobacco leaf alongside assertive close-grained tannins. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 86 Vintage 2011 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of scorched soil, chopped herb, menthol, overripe plum and a funky whiff evoking barnyard lead the nose. The aromas carry over to the rustic palate along with dried black cherry and a bitter note. Tight close-grained tannins leave a drying finish. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
