94 points Wine Spectator: "White pepper, sage and forest floor notes up front lead to vibrant cherry and wild strawberry flavors on a crisp frame, with touches of sarsaparilla and tomato leaf lingering on the finish. The tannins are firm but polished. Drink now through 2028. 450 cases made. Highly Recommended. (10/15/18)"

94 points James Suckling: "Earthy, sinewy and savory with a world of spice and fragrant cherry aromas. This has a succulent palate and a wealth of fleshy red cherries and plums with wild herbs and an almost bracken edge. The palate has lithe, juicy and assertively tannic drive. Good weight and depth. Acidity is a feature. Sappy, ripe-tannin finish. Drink in 2022. (10/8/18)"

94 points Decanter: "A synthesis of white pepper and red cherry with a lovely, salty soy edge. On the palate this is full, fluid and a little edgy – but elegant. It retains a spiciness throughout and does not carry an ounce of fat. The pepper and freshness just linger. Drinking Window 2020- 030. Alcohol 13%."
