This Rose is the beautiful pale pink of a summer sunset, it greets the taster with a perfume of honeydew and bubblegum. The palate is juicy and expressive tasting of strawberries and apricot finishing with the clean minerality of slate.
PLATINUM 94 Points ~ San Diego International Competition
This wine knocks it out of the park! The nose has aromas of violet and a subtle earthy, herbaceousness. The palate is a symphony of textures and flavors, balancing dark-ripe cherry, warm savory notes and dusty coco, intertwined with fine structure that is somewhere between delicate and powerful like a skilled athlete. The final impression is one of persisting flavor and old-world grace.

Dark and savory this wine is complemented by juicy black cherries and subtle leather aromas, it is bright and voluptuous with warm baking spice and cedar character and a steady finish exuding ripe tannins.

91 Points ~ James Suckling
This is a round juicy wine that coats the palate with layers of ripe-earthy-savory brilliance. The aromas offer everything from sage and cigar tobacco to leather and fresh english plums, on the palate it is lush and expansive, with tons of dark fruit and baking spice, the finish carries through with fine tannins, and lingering dark fruit flavors.
Aromas of fresh black plums, black pepper jerky, and violet entice you to taste this big, juicy, mouth coating wine and revel in flavors of black currant and cedar, braced by subtle graphite; on the finish you find fine, dense tannins and fresh wild mushroom undertones. One of my favorites!
