Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This wine holds an allowable amount of Anderson Valley fruit, in addition to grapes from Sonoma Coast, including many of the winery’s vineyard designates. Rose petals and a helping of clove mark the entry, followed by savory elements of black tea, tart cherry, blueberry and black pepper on the palate. These continue with subtle force through the finish.
Wine Spectator 88 points - Offers a pleasant mix of cedar and dusty, earth-tinged berry flavors, with savory herb and crushed rock notes, firming on the finish, where the tannins are gravelly. Drink now through 2022. 600 cases made.-JL
