Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2011 The Evil Twin is a blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. Lacking a little complexity at the moment, with straightforward dark fruits, chocolate, spice and toast, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful freshness and fine tannin that emerges on the finish. Give it another year or two and enjoy bottles over the following decade.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Fresh and lively, with juicy flavors of blackberry and cream on a light-weight frame, remaining open-textured as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2017. 400 cases made.
