New Vinous Scores from Josh Raynolds

renowed reviewer josh raynolds of vinous just published his annual report on paso robles and we received 90+ points on four of our estate grown wines


92 points - 2013 Fog Catcher

"Inky ruby. Dark berries and cherry pit on the smoke-accented nose, complicated by notes of licorice, incense and cracked pepper. Concentrated and surprisingly energetic blackberry, bitter cherry and vanilla flavors are given spine and back-end bite by a core of juicy acidity. Smooth tannins shape the spicy, appealingly sweet finish, which shows impressive tenacity." not available

92 points - 2014 Twisted Spur

"Deep ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, succulent herbs, mocha and pipe tobacco are joined by a peppery nuance that builds in the glass. Rich and seamless in texture, offering sweet cherry and blueberry flavors and a suggestion of licorice candy. A floral note emerges on the very long, gently tannic finish, which leaves a hint of medicinal cherry behind.." Purchase now » 

91 points - 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

"Opaque ruby. Ripe, oak-accented dark berries, cherry and a hint of pipe tobacco on the deeply perfumed nose. Plush and round on entry, then more taut in the midpalate, offering energetic bitter cherry and black currant flavors and building smokiness. Shows good clarity and punch on the gently tannic finish, which leaves notes of cherry pit and sexy vanillin oak behind." Purchase now »

90 points - 2014 syrah

"Dark purple. Ripe dark fruit and floral scents pick up subtle olive and herb nuances as the wine stretches out. Smooth and broad in the mouth, offering lush blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter on the back half. Full and fleshy on the persistent finish, which features rounded tannins and a lingering suggestion of candied licorice." Purchase now »

90 points - 2014 reserve marsanne, heart hill vineyard

"Light yellow. Aromas of orange, melon and pear, along with a honeysuckle nuance and a hint of smoky minerals. Dry and focused on the palate, offering nicely concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of succulent herbs. Finishes with good clarity, an echo of poached pear and a suave, lingering floral quality." Purchase now »
