Rose petal is the first aroma of this wine, leading into rich mocha and black pepper spice. On the palate, deep fruit flavors of blackberry finish with toasted honey oats. It also has the iconic characteristics of the minerality that comes from Howell Mtn. soil. Robust and well balanced, this wine is beautiful out of the bottle now and will gain even more complexity over the next few years.

Wine Enthusiast

Not ready now, or anytime soon, because it's locked down in astringent tannins. Yet it's very rich and dense in black currants, black cherries and unsweetened dark chocolate, and its integrity shines through the finish. Hold off until after 2011, and could develop far beyond in a good cellar.

Score: 92. —Steve Heimoff, December 01, 2009.
