"This delicious Riesling is opulent, rich, lusciously sweet and has a long finish."
"A spicy, peppery wine, with a hint of fruity flavor such as berries or dark cherries."
"91 Points- Wine Advocate. The nose offers up gorgeously sweet, expansive aromas of melted licorice, black cherries, currants, underbrush, and a hint of camphor. Dense, chewy, full-bodied, and fabulously pure, with a multilayered, textured mid-palate as well as a long, savory, well-delineated, moderately tannic finish."
"93 Points- Stephen Tanzer. Knockout aromas of strawberry, cherry, blood orange and flowers, complicated by a smoky minerality and a building peppery quality. Wonderfully elegant and silky wine, with perfectly integrated acidity giving it noteworthy energy. This saturates the palate without leaving any sense of undue weight."
"A hearty 18% Malbec is part of this wine, from the producer's appellation estate. Clove, cedar and graphite kick things off on the nose, before youthful tannin give breadth and depth to the ripe blackberry, cherry and blueberry. The wine is soft and seductive on the finish."
"93 Points- Wine Spectator. A big, ripe, rich and flavorful wine, with tiers of currant, anise, black cherry and spice, picking up pretty, toasted oak flavors and finishing with a silky-smooth texture."
"90 Points- Wine Advocate. A classic Bordeaux (Medoc) styled wine, this offering exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, followed by attractive aromas and flavors of lead pencil, spice, cedar, and black currants. While it is moderately tannic, medium-bodied, with outstanding concentration and purity, the wine remains tight and backward.It is an impressively elegant, finesse-styled proprietary red wine from Pine Ridge."
"92 Points- Wine Spectator. A classy California Zin from start to finish. Truly V.G.S. (Very Good S---), it's loaded with rich, complex flavors--tiers of cherry, anise, wild berry and plum--and finishes with supple tannins and a pretty, toasted oak accent."
"Opens with classic aromas of black-currant and cassis, with a pleasing anise note and smoky oak. Very extracted, with pronounced currant, blackberry and plum flavors. This is a really rich wine."
"91 Points- Wine Enthusiast. The really ripe dark cherry, toasty oak and licorice aromas and flavors here are winning. It has a wonderful sweetness and balance. The fruit here is rounder and more forward than in the Barelli -- still, it's big, juicy and has plenty of structure."
