WS 89 WE 88 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Bright and minerally, with a stony note weaving through the red berry and green tea flavors, lingering pleasantly against fine tannins. Drink now through 2018."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Aromas of smoked meat, mesquite, green olive and tire rubber meld with barrel spice accents. It’s soft and supple in feel with abundant savory flavors—an interesting wine that has some edge."
