92 points Tim Fish (Wine Spectator): "A spirited red that recalls a briar patch, with wild berry, sweet anise and white pepper flavors that race along to the vibrant, zesty finish. Drink now through 2030. 695 cases made. (7/31/2022)"
Producer notes: "Brilliant medium to medium-dark garnet-ruby. Very captivating, hi-toned aromas of macerated cherries, raspberry, and sweet brown tobacco. The nose alone makes it hard to leave the glass! The wine enters smoothly, displaying medium to medium-full body and flavors of red cherry, raspberry, and blood orange. By no means a light wine but with plenty of natural acidity, the wine dances delicately across the palate on its way to a lively, mineral-tinged finish. There’s so much in this wine to enjoy now but if you can wait, prime enjoyment should be from 2024 to 2028."
