94-Points, Wine Enthusiast — “This is a restaurant wine. It’s really fancy, really good, and really food-friendly. Although it’s rich in fruit and oak, it possesses an underlying tension, with acidity and tannins all vying for center stage. You’re always looking for the center of gravity. In other words, a wine of great complexity and interest.”

96-Points, Wine Spectator — “There’s a pleasant zestiness to the wild berry and red cherry fruit flavors, with ripe, spicy elements and a bit of peppery tobacco, cedar and fresh herb notes. Full-bodied, with good intensity that persists through the finish. 600 cases made.”

“Top Pick,” San Francisco Chronicle — “This soon-to-be-released vintage from Kenneth Juhasz and grower Anne Moller-Racke, who planted the estate vineyards in 1989, has intense but elegant fruity, ripe black cherry, licorice; fresh bay leaf and spice are balanced with food-friendly acidity and structure. A nuanced bottling.”
