96 points Wine Enthusiast, Cellar Selection: "Grenache (61%, Upland) takes the lead in this wine, followed by Mourvèdre (23%, Heart of the Hill) and Syrah (Oldfield). There's plentiful huckleberry aromas along with notes of black raspberry, dried herb, black pepper, flower, smoked meat and bittersweet chocolate, showing nuance and detail. The palate is swoon-worthy and knee-buckling, bringing depth and balance along with seemingly endless length. It's shockingly good, with the outrageous balance what separates it. Best from 2022–2027."
Elegance and beautiful Grenache character. Oozing with black raspberry and cracked pepper aromas with a darker, meatier profile of flavors. I’d like to pair it with grilled duck or lamb sausages and herb-roasted new potatoes.
