Wine Spectator | Rating: 88Very impressive for the mix of snappy cherry, plum and wild berry notes, with fresh earth, spice, light cedar and crushed rock accents. Finishes long and clean, leaving you hoping for a little more depth from the midpalate on. Drink now. 650 cases made.Author: James Laube
