Score: 90 | July 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

Bright red berry fruit meets smoky undertones of peppered meat, seasoned further with licorice and cola. Full-bodied and robust, the wine’s tannins are grippy and supportive.

Juicy and brightly layered despite its ripeness and soft density, this shows rich strawberry and raspberry flavor, wrapped in leathery earth.

Excellent, Highly Recommended
Stately and elegant nose of cassis, black currant, brown spice, tobacco, and cedar. Bold, meaty tannins frame unctuous black cherry, tar, dried violet, and olive tapenade flavors and a mouth-coating, lasting finish ensues. A beautiful, classic California Cabernet.

Excellent, Highly Recommended
This is a classically styled and proportioned Napa Cabernet with delightful aromatics of cassis, toasted cedar, blackberry preserves, and wild fennel. The palate is a decadent combination of ripe fruit, dark cocoa, and a nice touch of savory tannin.

 Juicy, fresh and lively, this is a light-bodied effort with a big presence on the palate in terms of rich mouthfeel and velvety tannin. Blueberry, cherry and a pronouncement of forest floor play well together to offer both savory and fruit-tinged sweet. —V.B.

Earthy cherry and cardamom instantly attract the nose and palate of this wine, flirty and floral in classically varietal aromas of forest floor and wild truffle. Juicy acidity keeps it alive and vibrant as it opens and develops, offering a welcome twist of tangerine in the background. —V.B.

A rich depth of flavor is at the heart of this wine, a mix of blueberry, blackberry and cherry that shows a generosity on the nose and palate. Bright acidity lifts the deeper, darker notes of toasted oak and cola. —V.B. 

Score: 92 | June 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

Rustic compost, wild strawberry and cola spice highlight this medium-bodied, velvety textured wine, buoyed by a linear streak of lively acidity. Leather and smoke accentuate the finish. —V.B.
