Score: 94 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

This is an expansive, vibrantly alive and buzzy white that’s floral in apple and orange blossom aromas. Its freshness is complemented by richer deeper undertones of baked quince and tangerine, with a gravelly stony quality to the texture that makes it hard to resist. 

Score: 94 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

From a site situated at 900-feet in elevation and located blissfully close to the coast, this vineyard-designate is intensely salty and briny, in firm grasp of stony mineral characteristics. With a depth and breadth of full-bodied concentration, it’s complex and layered in Gravenstein apple and pear, the aromas a mix of honeysuckle and apple blossom. 

Score: 93 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

Heady aromatics pierce through a full-figured sensibility of oak and body in this well-made wine—a partnership between the winery and musician John Legend. A gritty texture makes way for a length of baked pineapple and pear decadence that lingers effortlessly on the palate.

Score: 92 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

Reduced oak settles in the glass to unleash juicy flavors of Gravenstein apple, lemon, grapefruit and white flower. Gravelly texture gives it context and complexity that buoys the full-bodied frame and allows for persistent acidity.

Ripe and smoky, this full wine is juicy and packed with both fruit and tannins. It’s concentrated, with perfumed red-berry fruits showing strongly along with the tannins and firm structure. Its future looks good.

Score: 91 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

This dense and tannic wine, from the lower slope of the village, is firm and solid. It has a powerful core of tannins as well as rich black fruits that are developing behind the structure. Concentration and dryness mean the wine needs to age, so drink from 2021. 

Score: 90 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

This is a floral wine, ripe and creamy. It has spice and toast from wood aging along with good acidity and impressiver richness. The wine is full-bodied, spicy, full of yellow and pear fruits. 

Score: 90 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

This is a juicy and full-bodied white, tightly woven in oak and butterscotch. Expansive on the palate, with a depth of apple pie and nutmeg, it offers a balance of fresh acidity that complements well.

Score: 90 | February 18, 2018 | Wine Enthusiast

With a breath of matchstick on entry, this wine is ultimately juicy and gritty in texture, with a persistent backbeat of toasty oak. Ripe apple and papaya mix well to offer a tropical creaminess.

Big oak and a touch of reduction show through on the nose of this appellation wine, as full-figured flavors of crème brûlée, pineapple and Gravenstein applesauce play along a gravelly texture. Highlights of nutmeg and ginger spice the fruit well.
