100 Point Rating Guide

96-100 Extraordinary A wine of finesse, complexity, and expression. True to variety and region. Perfect balance of flavors with a long finish.
90-95 Excellent True to variety and region, with terrific complexity and balance. While not a wine for the ages, a superior example.
85-89 Good Meets your expectations, with sound flavors and balance. Might have limited complexity or be short on the palate. A sound wine.
80-84 Average Drinkable, might not have as much varietal character. Simple flavors, no flaws, but nothing special.
75-79 Below Average Might contain one flaw, simple straight-forward flavors, off-balance, unpleasant.
60-74 Undrinkable, Flawed Contains significant flaws. Unpleasant, not commercially acceptable.

Lovely seductive nose; mint and eucalyptus hints. Good fruit, tad dilute but nice tannins give food a call - braised lamb.

Bold nose that hits you hard. Spicy with a great structurally sound mouthfeel. Got some vanilla too.

I think this would go well with red sauce pasta and/or beef, because I pulled lots of tomato, and it has what it takes to stand up to hearty food.

Aroma of raspberry, blackberry with some oakiness. Full-bodied with a very smooth finish. Not very tannic for a cab. (Dan R)

Nose: oak of course, moss, fennel blossom. Taste: too astringent, spicy, pepper, asparagus.

Deep rich curranty cinammon on the nose. Nice smokey/chalky mouthfeel. Very pleasant.
