Critical Acclaim

SP97 Wine Spectator Dec 31, 2019

"A large wine, with a dense, layered core of black currant, blackberry and fig fruit paste flavors, steeped with sagebrush, tar, loam and tobacco accents. A bolt of warm cast iron runs through the finish, providing structure and support that should allow this to cruise for two decades in the cellar. A terrific combination of intense, modern, clearly defined fruit, with an old-school grounding in terroir. Best from 2025 through 2045. 500 cases made." (97 pts.)

JD97 Jeb Dunnuck 1/31/2020

"A new project focusing on the To Kolan Vineyard, these wines are made by the talented Andy Erickson. There are less than 600 cases of the 2016 Highest Beauty, and it’s all Cabernet Sauvignon, from eight different blocks in the famed To Kalon Vineyard, that spent 21 months in new French oak. It reveals a deep, inky color as well as a classic Cabernet nose of blackcurrants, cassis, tobacco leaf, liquid violets, espresso, and flowery incense. This carries to a full-bodied, powerful To Kalon that has nicely integrated acidity, ripe, present tannins, and beautiful length on the finish. This is a ripe, sexy, yet flawlessly balanced Cabernet that can be drunk today with incredible pleasure or cellared for 15–20 years, if you’re so inclined." (97 pts.)

JS99 JamesSuckling.com Tuesday, January 26, 2021

"This pure cabernet sauvignon is the real deal with redcurrant and terracotta character on both the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied, yet really reserved and ultra-refined. The quality of the tannins is super with such fine grain, yet it continues on for minutes. This is the first release and it shows beautiful classicism. Shows the essence of the place. Needs four or five years to come around. Try after 2023." (99 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.
