...a playful reference to Nuestra Senora de la Soledad, the Virgin of Solitude...All the fruit was grown at The Third Twin vineyard and it is from the incredibly fantastic 2016 vintage...quite wonderfully dark color starts things out. The nose, initially slightly subdued, is solid, thorough and good. The wine was only decanted for an hour and surely would have benefited from more. It got better and better as time wore on. The mouth is great...very smooth and soft and velvety. Rather tightly woven with no holes at all...with soft, but supple Asian spices in the potpourri of flavors. It was even better than I remembered from previous trials and tastings. E loves it. | M. Krankl, The Third Twin

...It boasts a huge, powerful bouquet of ripe currants, white chocolate, white pepper and graphite. This carries to a full-bodied wine that shows Mourvedre mid-palate, and a blockbuster finish. This is a big, rich wine yet, like everything from the Krankls, it stays incredibly balanced and weightless. | 98 points, Jeb Dunnuck for

...It is dense, plush and packed to the core. Leather, smoke, licorice, mocha, chocolate, grilled herbs, menthol and tobacco give this 2016 a decidedly savory edge to play off the sumptuous fruit. Full-bodied and unapologetically rich, the 2016 shows the more potent side of these wines to great effect. This flamboyant red is long on richness and intensity.
