"COLOR-very dark; NOSE-this smells like straight CRAP; classic cow manure mixed with soil; Old World musty; TASTE-I'm shocked right now -- this is exceptional; this is a home run; great concentration; inky; very grapey; really interesting earth tones & veggies; blackberries & blueberries for days; almost Bordeaux like with it's fruit & earth tones; cherries; intense & viscous; completely attacks your palate; this is a MUST have wine; this is my style -- a beautiful balance of Old & New World; one of the best $10 wines I've ever had on WLTV; JR-88; GV-90+" - 90 Points - Gary Vaynerchuk
"Ruby-red. Deep cassis and blackberry on the nose, with complicating notes of mocha, herbs and dried flowers. Brighter red fruit flavors offer good clarity and punch, with a bitter botanical herb character building with air. Finishes with bitter chocolate and cherry pit flavors and good length. Drinkers attuned to easygoing, fruity wines may be perplexed by this." 88 Points - Josh Raynolds
"Also rated 88 Points by Jay Miller, but no tasting notes were given."
