91 points Wine Advocate
This is Malbec and Syrah in their most natural expression of untouched grapes shining through and capturing the true essence of the Biodynamic vineyard where they were picked. It has a beautiful pomegranate color and aroma of fresh red cherry with light French oak undertones. The palate is fresh and lively with black raspberry and spiced mocha notes. Pair with BBQ, burgers or on its own.
