96 Points - Vinous
"Deep violet. Intensely perfumed aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry liqueur, licorice and exotic spices are complemented by a suave floral overtone. Sappy cherry-vanilla, cassis and blueberry flavors stain the palate and become spicier with air. Finishes smooth and exceptionally long and precise, with resonating spiciness and polished tannins that add gentle final grip." -JR, Dec/2020

"Quite dark in the gl1ass, this blend of 47% Mourvèdre, 34% Grenache and 19% Syrah offers seared plum, purple flower and richly layered spice aromas on the nose. The palate is a lesson in cohesion, with well-integrated waves of boysenberry, black cherry, purple flowers and licorice, framed by polished tannins and fresh acidity." -MK, 4/1/21

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2017 Veracity is a blend of 47% Mourvèdre, 34% Grenache and 19% Syrah aged 18 months in 26% new French oak. It has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and is youthfully reluctant on the nose. With time, it reveals aromas of blackcurrant, milk chocolate, fresh blueberries, redcurrants, blood orange and desiccated roses with notes of pink peppercorn and salumi. The palate is medium to full-bodied, silky and gaining in amplitude, opening to red, blue and black fruits with oodles of floral perfume. It has a firm, grainy frame and mind-bending juiciness to lift the long, layered finish. Give this at least another 2-3 years in bottle. 870 cases produced." -EB, 2/6/20

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Densely structured but expressive, with black currant and cherry flavors that are laced with grilled garrigue, cured meat and licorice, building toward broad-shouldered tannins. Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2029. 870 cases made." -TF, 5/31/21
