- Score: 88 Vintage 2020 Wine Spectator This medium-bodied red is lively and balanced, offering an appealing mix of juicy boysenberry and blackberry fruit, eucalyptus and spices. Drink now. 15,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 90 Vintage 2019 Wine Enthusiast A dense black-cherry aroma meets lightly toasted fennel seed and violet on the nose. It’s plush and well textured on the medium-bodied palate, with broad, rich flavors of mixed dark berries bolstered by juicy acidity and velvety tannins. A berry jam flavor extends on the finish, but with lift and verve. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 87 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Primitivo Il Medaglione wafts up with a fresh and spicy bouquet of tart cherries, cloves and dusty dried roses. It’s soft-textured with zesty acids that enliven its wild berry fruits, further complemented by a twang of tangerine. This tapers off to a bitter tinge of blackberry. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of blood orange, baked plum and cherry are lifted by potpourri spice on the nose. Rounded and juicy on the palate, a succulent red fruit jam flavor is honed by racy acidity and fine-grained tannins. ALEXANDER PEARTREE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
