90 points from Wine Spectator, who says:

"Bright and lively, with a light bramble note weaving in among the raspberry, plum and blackberry compote flavors as toast and licorice hints check in. The brambly element keeps this energetic through the finish. Drink now through 2022."

The winery says:

For Quilt Napa Valley, we focus on vineyards with well-draining, low-nutritive soils that stress the vines. The result of these soils is a grape crop with extraordinary concentration of flavor, color, and texture. While the majority of the fruit (70%) comes from the floor of the Napa Valley to achieve the richness and elegance desired, we also relied on some grapes grown at elevation on Napa Valley benchlands and hillsides for a final blend with more structure and complexity than we could have achieved had we used fruit grown solely on the Valley floor.

Deep, dark brick red to blood plum, with aromas of creme de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, dark fruits and blackberry pie along with suggestions of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice, and vanillin. The palate is rich and satisfying with chocolate brownie, yogurt molasses, brown sugar, and rhubarb notes presented in perfect balance with higher-toned fruit emphasis. 

This wine is confirmed as vegan and gluten free by the winery.
