Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A glass full of youthful-looking ruby wine leads to an equally as youthful nose: aromas of cherry, strawberries, raspberries, candied apples, eucalyptus, wet stone minerality and rosemary.
A dry wine with high acid, reaching to the higher end of low in body, alcohol and tannin, with a medium intensity of youthful flavours of red and black berries, candied apples, eucalyptus, cloves and walnuts with minerality, a raw woodiness (like that of gin), and a finish that moves the wine into a pleasantly bitter (think radicchio) state. This is a good wine (especially for the price!) that should be enjoyed now. Although the wine contains very little Syrah it shows up in all of the right places and is a wonderful blending partner to the Italian Teroldego grape. This is an easy drinking wine that could be enjoyed on its own but would pair nicely with rabbit, pickerel, vegetable based dishes, bitter greens, pork/ham with a fruit preparation, light pâté, nuts or prosciutto.
