90 points - Wine Spectator, November 30, 2011 "Floral, plum and spice aromatics enliven this medium-weight, silky-textured red, with the flavors lingering effectively on the attractive finish. This has stature and immediate appeal. Drink now through 2014."

89 points - Wine Spectator, 2011 web only review "Ripe, fleshy and nicely focused to express its raspberry, cherry and tangy pepper and spice flavors on a lively, long structure. Tannins have a mild grip, which needs time to soften. Best after 2012." - HS
Silver Medal / Highly Recommended - Beverage Testing Institute “Aromas of mocha, crushed berries, delicate ginger and spice follow through on a round entry to a dryish light-to-medium body with water cracker, cocoa, and dusty earth notes on the drying tannin finish. Nice Crianza-like character.”
Recommended by Andy Perdue & Eric Degerman of Wine Press Northwest: "This Prosser winery with estate vineyards on the arid Wahluke Slope has crafted a luscious and affordable Tempranillo. It opens with aromas of huckleberries, strawberries and tobacco, followed by flavors of boysenberries and huckleberries."
