A velvety, seamless texture and subtly layered fruit, spice and cream flavors make this rich and full-bodied wine practically irresistible. Generous red and black cherries, dark plums, light vanilla and nutmeg accents fill out the expansive frame of this luxurious wine. Best–2030

Rich, lush and mouth filling, this deceptively full-bodied blend of mostly Merlot and Petite Sirah shows a soft touch on the palate, oozing milk chocolate, mocha and cooked cherry flavors on a soft frame of melted tannins. - Jim Gordon

Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 Tarot comes from a mix of valley floor sites and was raised in mostly neutral French oak. It's a smoking value and offers lots of sweet red and black fruits, notes of herbes de Provence and spice, medium body, ripe, soft tannins, and outstanding length. It's not going to make terribly old bones, but this beauty will put a smile on your face any time over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer.

Dusky tones of grilled plums, redwood forest and balsam fill the aromas of this full-bodied, ultrasmooth wine. Very ripe dried-fruit and dark chocolate flavors take over the palate.

This ripe, rich, almost-sweet wine offers indulgent baking spices, cherry syrup, maple and black-currant flavors on a velvety texture of soft tannins. It feels broad and full bodied on the palate, letting the concentrated fruit flavors soak in.

Superripe, jammy flavors of strawberries and blackberries are nicely accented by oak spices of vanilla, toast and cedar in this moderately tannic, firmly structured wine. It offers lots of fruit and power.

This deep, dusky wine tastes authentic and varietally true. It offers savory black olives and black pepper along with lots of black cherries and dark plums on a moderately tannic texture and full body. The wine’s concentration and balance are outstanding.

A potpourri of spices, herbs and black tea fill the aroma of this complex, oaky and full-bodied wine. Wood char, cinnamon and cloves meet dark plums, black cherries and a touch of spicy ginger.

Score: 92 | December 31, 2022 | Wine Enthusiast

This rich, broad and mouthfilling wine soothes the palate with generous, ripe dark-plum and ripe blackberry flavors shaded by redwood forest and balsam accents. The moderate tannins are super smooth, adding to the indulgent character of this full-bodied wine.

Score: 93, Editors' Choice | December 31, 2022 | Wine Enthusiast

This robust, fruity and moderately tannic wine will pair well with grills and roasts, as its firm texture and generous dark plum and blackberry flavors have plenty of power. Made from the fruit of several pre-Prohibition vineyards, the wine is full bodied, peppery and complex. Editors’ Choice.
