"Fragrant, with cherry, strawberry and rose notes, this elegant red offers flavors of berry fruit, licorice and underbrush, ending with a firm grip of tannins and chewy licorice and spice accents. Best from 2019 through 2032. 23,333 cases made." 94 RP

"As it opens, this wine's ever-so-slightly-dried black-cherry aroma emerges with elegance and power, alongside unending layers of potpourri, crushed flowers, juniper and dark spice. The palate leads with a tart cranberry note that broadens into a warmer strawberry flavor, laced together with tingling acidity and sagebrush spice."

"A magnificent wine made the by the brilliant winemaker Chris Carpenter, who also works for the Kendall-Jackson empire at Lakoya and a handful of other estates, this blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot is sourced from multiple vineyards owned by the Jacksons, from Veeder Peak to Spring Mountain to Howell Mountain. In 2014, it reminded me of a great vintage of Pontet-Canet from Pauillac, but slightly bigger than life. The inky purple color, the stunning nose of cedar wood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, graphite, crème de cassis and subtle new oak is followed by a multi-layered, profoundly concentrated, large-scaled wine with sensational levels of blackcurrant fruit moving toward blackberries. A wine of great intensity, silky tannins and adequate acidity, this is clearly one of the great, great wines of the vintage, and another tour de force in winemaking from Carpenter. It is a 15- to 20- year wine, but the window for drinking its is probably that big as well."

"This wine is soft, smooth and brightly focused in acidity. The palate offers a sanguine notion, with cassis and meat tones that are highlighted by cinnamon. A persistent freshness prevails on the finish."

"A lifted, ethereal note of bitter almond suggests the beginnings of evolution. The palate, on the other hand, still seems closed but displays a streamlined concentrated core of flawless dryness and precise bundled freshness. This is taut, precise and sure to develop. The finish is lasting, refreshing and clean. Drink now through 2030."

"Fragrant and intense, with honeysuckle, ginger and orange marmalade flavors, juicy lemon and pear notes and a smooth, lush texture. There's plenty of juiciness on the finish, and details of lemon verbena and apple blossom. Drink now through 2020. 150 cases imported."

"New leather, baked plum, truffle and fruitcake aromas rise up from the glass. It's rounded and full bodied, with velvety tannins that underscore fig, steeped prune, cinnamon, graphite and chewing tobacco. Fresh acidity lifts the rich flavors. Drink through 2023."

"This wine is aged in American oak and blended with 12% Petite Sirah. Concentrated blackberry fruit rides a foundation of soft, silky and well-integrated succulence, with touches of leather saddle, black pepper, smoke and brick. While full bodied, it manages to drink light on its feet."

"A barrel sample, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored, with a decadent cassis, baked blackberries and plum preserves-scented nose, plus hints of spice cake, cedar and Marmite toast. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and wonderfully spicy in the mouth, it has velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long." 92-94 Oct2017

"A blend of 70% Grenache and 15% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, the 2015 Gigondas Domaine la Haut Marone is aged partially in second- and third-use barriques. There are touches of cedar and vanilla but also ripe cherries and stone fruit with ample weight and richness in the mouth and a long, mouthwatering finish."
