ALTA Napa Valley - "Oso Malo" Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage 2010
91 Points - 
"Violet black color. Spicy aromas of vanilla peppermint bark, herbal lozenge and lingonberry jam with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a latte and tart berry coulis finish. A zesty, flavorful wine that will be great with spicy lamb and beef dishes."

Vintage 2012
88 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
"…offers attractive blueberry and mulberry fruit intermixed with floral undertones in its intense aromatics. Savory berry fruit is noticeable on the palate, less earthiness than I expect in an Atlas Peak Cabernet, excellent purity and texture, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. It is not a boisterous, exuberant or overly dramatic effort, but one that relies on restraint and finesse. Drink it over the next 6-7 years.”

ALTA Napa Valley "Vintner's Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage 2011
88 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintners Reserve exhibits more juiciness, depth and ripeness in its elegant, finesse-styled personality. Medium-bodied and pleasant, it is best drunk over the next decade."

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"Solid and full-bodied, this tightly structured Cabernet has a deep red-black color. Enticing aromas of cedar and cinnamon precede focused but not overly ripe fruit flavors that suggest black cherry and cranberry, plus a dark chocolate impression that suits it well. It’s tight with tannins right now, so best to drink after 2016." 

ALTA Napa Valley - Sauvignon Blanc

Sunset Magazine Gold - 2011 & 2012 Vintages

Vintage 2013
89 Points - Recommended - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"The aroma of this sleek, dry wine made from organic grapes is subtly herbal. Flavors suggest crisp green apple and kiwi, and it has a crisp balance, smooth texture and very clean finish. It shows a sophisticated restraint that will pair well with any number of appetizers and seafood courses.

ALTA Napa Valley - Chardonnay

Vintage 2012
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"A deep gold color combines with ripe fruit aromas and assertive, seductive oak flavors like vanilla and nutmeg in this full-bodied, lush-textured, unapologetic California Chardonnay. A layer of the tasty oak flavors stays strong on the finish."
