Rated 90 Points from Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

Winemaker Notes:
Pluot, cherry anise and fine cocoa are exhibited on the aromatic profile. Bright red fruit and boysenberry preserves are underlined by a clean crème brulée middle. The finish is extended with very soft tannins accented with new French oak. Good to drink now and will cellar well for the next 8-12 years.
