Critical Acclaim

SP87 Wine Spectator Web only – 2014

"Engaging, with a juicy, pebbly feel along the edges and a friendly core of steeped plum, anise and blackberry fruit. A light brambly shading shows on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 10,000 cases made." (87 pts.)

RP86 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Apr 2014

"Despite its garish orange label, this is a very good wine. Fruity, medium-bodied and purely made, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, fleshy fruit and soft tannins. It is ideal for drinking over the next 2–3 years." (86 pts.)

WE85 Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2014

"Smoky wood aromas are confirmed on the palate by a tough, wood-laden character. It’s all spice and toast, leaving little room at this stage for fruit. That should come because the wine has weight and suggestions of rich berry fruits in the background." (85 pts.)

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
