92-94 pts // Robert Parker's Wine Advocate // William Kelley
"The Super Tuscan-styled 2016 Sonata is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah and 28% Sangiovese. Wafting from the glass with notes of ripe black cherry, blueberries, herbs and balsamic reduction, it's full-bodied, rich and layered, with a youthfully firm chassis of fine-grained tannins, backed up by the concentration and substance to integrate them."

"Brilliant ruby. Heady cherry and raspberry liqueur aromas are complicated by suggestions of incense and exotic spices and flowers. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that are energized by a jolt of white pepper. Shows impressive depth of flavor and no excess fat, and finishes impressively long and smooth, with harmonious tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence."
