"With suggestions of cola and loamy soils in the nose that set it just slightly apart from its Sonoma siblings, the latest Dickerson bottling leads with a big burst of flashy, in-your-face fruit but is structured for age and conveys a fine sense of reserve. Its turn to last-minute roughness is entirely appropriate to its age, and its extreme fruity length is a sure sign that years of very positive growth lie ahead. Reviewed: January 2016" (CG)

"A 100% varietal wine, this offers a juiciness of red fruit that's deliciously inviting, surrounded by plenty of cinnamon and black pepper. Grippy and full bodied, it reins in its ripeness well, remaining structured and complex through a mineral-driven finish." (WE)
