2011 Soul Patch Pinot Noir
Cellar Selection






92 Points | April 2014 | Sold Out

Delicacy of structure, yet complexity of flavor, combine to make this a lovely Pinot Noir.  It's dry and quite tart in acidity, creating a mouthwatering quality that frames sour-cheer candy and persimmon flavors.  The wine is a barrel selection from the winery's Laguna-area vineyard.  It's delicious enough to drink now, but really wants until 2020 to mellow.

Featuring a juicy backbone of blackberry and dark cherry (highlights of a seamless structure), this wine shines in additional flavors of vanilla and leather.  Full bodied, it holds its weight and breadth in check, delivering voluptuous within a classic framework of style and complexity.

2015 Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley






94 Points | December 2017  

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is a smokin' good blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot.  Its deep purple/plum color is followed by a terrific perfume of blackcurrants, nori (seaweed wrapper), dark chocolate and licorice, and it develops more minerality with time in the glass.  Rich, full-bodied concentrated and structured, it has sweet tannin, a great mid-palate, and big finish.  It's still youthful and backward, and needs 3-4 years to show at its best, but will keep for two decades - JB

2016 Cotes de Tablas
Adelaida District







92 Points | May 2018 | $35

The Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas is a blend of four estate-grown Rhône varietals: Gernache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvèdre.  Like most wines of the Southern Rhône, it showcases Grenache, featuring that grape's characteristic generous fruit and refreshing acidity, balanced by the spice and mineral of Syrah, the appealing briary wildness of Counoise and the structure of Mourvèdre.
