2010 The ChangeUp
All bases are covered with this stunning Behrens & Hitchcock wine. For openers, is boasts a deep and saturated ruby color. On the nose are hints of cedar and bacon vinaigrette with classic Cabernet notes. Perfectly balanced acidity and soft tannins compliment and enhance the flavors of anise, cedar, clove and black currant with a finish like a fastball: balanced, focused and linear.

May/June 2013 (91 (+?) points) – Stephen Tanzer
Bright, medium ruby-red, with purple highlights. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate. Intense and precise in the mouth, with dark fruit flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes firm and subtly persistent. Like the foregoing wines, this is not a huge wine but offers very good balance and structure.
