  • 92 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (March 14): "Once again, Stolpman has joined these two disparate varieties into a most enticing and somewhat different wine from the norm. There is more red berry fruit here than one expects of Syrah and more pert energy to boot, and if the Syrah is boosted by the Sangiovese, the Sangiovese is filled out by the Syrah with notes of ripe blackberry and graphite and a touch of underlying fullness..."
  • 91 points, The Wine Advisor (Aug. 13): "...dishes out quality aromas of bright cherry, tar, licorice and toasted spice on the nose. Medium-bodied, pure, supple and beautifully balanced..."
