92 Points – The Wine Spectator
“Structure meets polish and style, with a tight beam of lively blackberry and cherry flavors, laced with crushed stone accents that build tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2029. 1,000 cases made.” — TF
93 Points – The Wine Spectator
“Polished and refined, with expressive black cherry, orange peel and bittersweet chocolate flavors that build richness toward fine tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2026. 1,200 cases made.” — TF
