“Cris Carter makes stunning wines... showing a lush cherry-vanilla nose that’s tightened with iron, iodine and earth. It’s soft on the palate, with violet and rose petal florals and plum-skin tartness in the midpalate.”
–Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast

“Lovely aromas of dark red cherry, plum, raspberry coulis, fruit leather and spice. Juicy and fresh with bright flavors of black cherry and black raspberry with fine grain tannins and complimentary oak in the background. Admirable balance and easy approachability.”
–Rusty Gaffney, Prince of Pinot

“Fresh raspberry and black cherry fruit, scents of warm shrubs and lavender, and a succulent texture make for a balanced and graceful wine.” –Sunset Magazine International Wine Competition
