Critical Acclaim

WE91 Wine Enthusiast 3/19/2017

"This full and smoothly soft wine blended with 10% Petite Sirah, 7% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot is aged in American oak, a quarter of it new. It pleases in bright red currant, cassis and wisps of blackberry, both approachable and sophisticated. Velvety black licorice meets smoky campfire on the finish." (91 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2016

"Red wines are also highlighted by the fabulous value in Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Allomi, is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petite Sirah, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It sells for a song and is a major sleeper of the vintage! This wine also sees 25% new American oak and spends 18 months in wood cooperage before it is released. The wine shows plenty of red and black fruits, earthiness and a lushness that is unusual for a Pope Valley Cabernet. It avoids the rustic tannins that area can sometimes turn out. This is a major winner and a delicious, fruit-forward, medium to full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for 5–10 years, if not longer. And, the good news continues — there are 64,000 cases of it." (89 pts.)

SP87 Wine Spectator Web only – 2016

"Clean and balanced, with spicy, cedary wood and dried dark berry, sage and underbrush flavors, accented by a light touch of oak. Ends clean and easy. Drink now. 67,000 cases made." (87 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
