Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Tin Box emerges from a parcel of 50 year-old vines in the heart of eastern Oakville. An exotic mélange of graphite, smoke, licorice, mint and crushed rocks add nuance to a core of unctuous, inky dark red and bluish fruits. A total pleasure bomb delivers superb intensity along with explosive energy, both of which make it impossible to resist. Once again, the Tin Box is one of the highlights in this range.

Vinous Media | 97 VM
From a vineyard just 200 yards away, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Tin Box is another 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from clone 7. This wine plays it slightly closer to the vest, showing plenty of earthy forest floor notes interwoven with white flowers, crème de cassis, licorice and cedar wood. It is full-bodied, rich, and while being made from a different clone of Cabernet Sauvignon, the aging in barrel is in part similar – 75% in new Taransaud, but the balance aged not in Gamba, but rather in new Darnajou. This wine should go on for 20-25 years at minimum.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 96 RP
A smooth, supple entry leads to an understated mix of dusty berry, cedar, gravel, currant and licorice flavors, gaining depth, nuance and tenderness as the tannins integrate. Drink now through 2026. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 100 cases made.

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.
Producer Bevan: When a producer receives several 100-point scores from legendary wine critic Robert Parker, all doubts surrounding the quality of their drink are washed away, like a twig in mountain rapids. Bevan Cellars uses primarily Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon as their varietals of choice. The winery's reputation grows by the year, which may encourage the entrepreneurs among you to invest in their finest bottles as early as possible - they're already somewhat difficult to obtain. Should you decide to uncork and sample a bottle from Bevan Cellars, a spark deep within your soul will erupt into a veritable wildfire of pleasure and satisfaction, as your palate is treated to a surging wave of intense, full-bodied flavor. The wines are incredibly powerful, but their elegance makes them highly approachable, especially while they're young.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
Type of Wine California Red: Whether it's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah or Zinfandel, Californian red wine producers have a lovely habit of taking a varietal and expressing its essence in a unique, never before seen way. From Napa Valley to the regions south of Los Angeles, there's a red for everyone - and it's never too late to start exploring.
