"Lush and juicy with tangy cherry and pure flavors; crisp, racy and bright, long and lively." -92 points. Anthony Dias Blue, The Tasting Panel, October 2015.

"Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Lovely perfume of fresh cherries, rose petal and bark. The mouth filling, darker cherry fruit is nicely spiced, with some added hints of red berries and sweet oak. The tannins and acidity are well balanced, and there is good intensity of red fruits on the finish. Nicely composed and easy to like." Score: 90. PinotFile, Volumn 10, Issue 12.

"This is slightly riper than its 2013 counterpart with a somewhat more deeply pitched nose of both red and dark berries, briar and an appealing floral nuance. This also exhibits good verve and precision on the delicious flavors that possess just a bit more volume while delivering fine length on the dusty, intense, moderately austere and focused finale. I like the balance and while this is by no means a seductive wine, there is already good depth and persistence. Again I would be inclined to allow this 5-ish years in a cool cellar though with air it could be enjoyed now." Score 90. Burghound

"The nose of raspberry jam, dusty black cherry and cranberry sauce includes hints of toasted walnut and minerality. It follows through with vibrant flavors of fresh cranberry sauce, ripe raspberry and Rainier cherry, framed by easy tannins and juicy acidity. Suggested pairings include wild game or pork roast." Outstanding. Great Northwest Wines, April 2015

"Here is a poster child for the vintage and the variety. Cherry, berry complexity accented by cinnamon and black pepper on the mid-palate. A harmonious balance of flavors, tannins and acidity that slowly says goodbye with a hint of chocolate on the finish." Oregon Wine Press Value Picks, November 2014.
