Wine Enthusiast: Cellar Selection. "...The tannins are gorgeous, the acidity fine, and the application
of oak is deft. It’s hard to describe just how good this wine feels in the mouth..." 97 points (Dec 2013)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "...nicely vibrant in the mouth,
with lovely floral list and purity to the red fruit flavors. If the aromoas are Barolo, then the
texture is more Burgundy..." 92-95 points (May 2012)
Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate: "...Elegant, medium-bodied and delicious with no hard edges, it
offers a sweet inner-core of fruit, so drink this attractive, stylish 2010 over the next 10-12

Winemakers Notes: Dynamic and complex aromatics of dark fruits including black Mission
figs and ripe sugarplum, with cocoa nibs, dried lavender, and cloves. Showing some fresh
earthiness that later opens up into layers of floral notes and blue fruits recalling dark cherry
and pomegranate. Sleek, sexy texture, coating the palate with a round consistent mouthfeel
and lingering sweet fruit finish. The ripe fruit flavors are sweet, dense juicy, and seamlessly
integrated with the oak notes. "This wine possesses everything I'm looking for in a complete,
quality wine experience with the texture, aromatics, fruit flavors, floral notes and wood
undertones all in balance," states second generation winemakers, Alan Viader.
