Wine Critic Reviews:

Saturated black-red in colour, with sensually compelling aromas of dark fruits, incense and sweet leather. Pristine, pure and head-turning. On the palate, this has classic Napa fruit: dark, rich, welcoming yet profound, amply ripe yet saved from over-ripeness by the precision and freshness of its tannins as well as the innate grain and complexity of the fruit. 2018-2030.

Decanter | 98 DEC
Graphite, tobacco leaf, scorched earth, and lead pencil notes all emerge from the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville Single Vineyard which is firm, concentrated, and focused on the palate, with beautiful purity of fruit. Aged 18 months in 50% new French oak, this Bordeaux look-alike will benefit from short-term cellaring and should evolve gracefully for 15+ years.

Jeb Dunnuck | 94 JD
This is a mouthful yet it remains structured and polished with lots of tannins and fruit at the same time yet in balance. I like the light austerity to it all. Full body, round and fresh. Drink in 2020 but already very well done for a hot vintage.

James Suckling | 94 JS
The deep purple-black colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville Single Vineyard offers red and black plums with warm blackberries, tilled soil and tar notes plus wafts of bouquet garni and garrigue. Medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, the mouth is elegant and fresh with lovely minerality on the long finish.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RP
This is a robustly tannic and powerful wine, its entry laced in peppercorn and crushed rock-like dust. Pencil shavings, dried herb, cedar and clove continue on the savory theme. An underlying earthiness barely tames the cassis-like fruit.

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.

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.
