Expert Reviews

The supple wild strawberry, cranberry and cherry flavors are both rich and focused in this red, with accents of clove, forest floor and cedar. Finishes with a grace note of fresh lavender. 92 Points - Wine Spectator, April 2014

This wine has fullish, fairly youthful colour, with savoury, complex aromas and flavours. Still fresh and lively, with sweet-fruit characters, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, and slightly fungal notes adding complexity, it's a strongly varietal wine, for drinking now or cellaring. 4.5 Star - Michael Cooper, May 2014
