2017 Wine Advocate Scores

we were both thrilled + humbled to receive three scores in the nineties from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate in the Fall of 2017


93+ points - 2014 Fog Catcher

"Composed of 37% Cabernet Franc, 29% Petit Verdot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Malbec, the 2014 Fog Catcher reveals a very deep garnet-black color and is scented of cassis, black berries and warm plums plus suggestions of pencil shavings, sautéed herbs, dusty earth and Indian spices. The medium to full-bodied palate is full-on gorgeous with grainy, beautifully ripe tannins, expressive fruit that simply sings with vibrancy and a lovely savory background, finishing with impressive persistence. Still pretty firm and youthful, give it another year or two in bottle and drink it over the next 15+." Release date, November 2017

92 points - 2014 Twisted Spur

"Composed of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah, 23% Petit Verdot and 6% Grenache, the 2014 Twisted Spur presents a deep garnet-purple color and a pronounced nose of crushed blackcurrants and black cherries plus suggestions of loam, black tea, roses and a hint of Indian spices. Big, full-bodied, rich and yet brightly fruited, it offers firm, ripe tannins in the mouth along with seamless freshness and great length." Purchase now » 

90 points - 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

"Blended of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Carménère and 6% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of baked blackberries and blackcurrant cordial with hints of anise, dried herbs and mocha. Medium to full-bodied, with great expression and freshness, it has a chewy backbone and long, fruity finish." Purchase now »
