WE91 - Wine Enthusiast - "This lush offering opens with appealing aromas of rose petals and fresh strawberries, then glides into a smooth-as-silk midpalate. The berry/cherry fruit is nicely adorned with toasty barrel flavors, and it’s as satiny as new sheets. You’ll find it hard to keep from gulping this by the glassful. Editors' Choice." W&S91- Wine & Spirits - "Ripe and demonstrative when first poured, this second Oregon vintage from the La Crema team has an oak-driven top note that recedes with air, revealing an earthy, dark red cherry flavor and a pleasing concentration in the finish. Pour it with roast squab."
