94 points, Platinum Challenge
- Winemaker Challenge, 2018
"A dark cherry, toasty oak and fall spice expression that satisfies. There is a nice bright acid streak keeping things knit together through the long finish. Serve this with something from the red meat side. A Platinum Award winner at the 2018 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition."
- Rich Cook, January 2018
"Dense, rich and smoky in cherry, bark and clove, this wine is full bodied and inviting, with a big streak of forest floor that's unrelentingly earthy."

88 points, Silver Medal
"Opaque violet color. Fruity aromas of purple fruit, streusel, bramble, and vanilla steamer with a velvety, vibrant, fruity medium body and a medium-length berry jam and toasted crumpet finish with well-integrated, dusty tannins and light oak. A full-bodied, unabashedly fruity pinot noir."
