"Crisp and savory, with hints of dried green herbs to the red plum and spiced cherry flavors. Iron accents on the finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made, 1,700 cases imported. -KM" (WS)

"A very fresh array of spiced-pastry aromas, across some ripe red plums and berries. The palate has a very fresh, lithe and juicy feel with terrific freshness and concentration of summer berries. Drink or hold." (JS)

"Dense, dark aromas of raisin and blackberry set up a full and chunky palate with a creamy texture. Mildly salty berry flavors include a whack of oak spice, while oak-led flavors settle in on a finish that tastes slightly baked and feels warm. -Michael Schachner" (WE)
