"A rich, concentrated style, displaying blackberry compote, dark chocolate and plum sauce flavors, edged with sweet spice and smoky details. Firm, integrated tannins and solid acidity lend ample structure through the licorice-tinged finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,000 cases made.–GS " (WS)

"Deep vivid ruby. Vibrant aromas of black raspberry, cherry cola and violet pick up allspice and licorice nuances with air. Juicy, concentrated and subtly sweet, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that become deeper and sweeter with air. The floral note comes back strongly on the impressively long finish, which features sneaky tannins, lingering spiciness and a touch of vanilla." (VM)

"Blackberry and blueberry aromas of wet leaves, stones and caramel. Full body, round and chewy tannins and a long finish. Extracted. Needs time to soften. Drink in 2019. " (JS)

"Almost opaque. The expressive nose is very, very ripe yet somehow manages not to be surmature, jammy or pruney. There is exceptionally good richness and concentration to the robust, powerful and mouth coating flavors where the supporting tannic spine is decidedly prominent on the noticeably warm finish. This is one of those wines that one either likes because it's out-sized or one doesn't because it is. This is too much for me but it's not technically flawed (other than the warmth) and it is not without a certain, if particular, appeal." (BH)
