VinoUS Media Review
Rated 92
This wine offers lovely precision and a fine thread of acidity from start to finish, stemming from both the site and the 19% whole clusters. There's ripe yet piquant red fruit, as well as an intriguing note of white stone fruit – think what the merest splash of Viognier does to Syrah and you'll have the right idea in terms of flavor. There's a touch of vanilla sweetness from the oak (36% new French over 14 months) but it's well integrated within the package. Tannins are supple and richly textured. While there's a sense of depth on the midpalate, there's a tension throughout. All in all, rather classy. Drink 2021-2028.

Wine Tasting Notes
This wine is a single vineyard expression of the Taylors Pass site, showcasing an intense bouquet of ripe juicy raspberries and blueberries with hints of baking spices. A harmonious palate delivers mocha notes intermingled with red cherries, subtle dried herbs and finishes with velvety smooth tannins.
