99Robert M. Parker Jr.

...pushing perfection... ...beautiful notes of acacia flowers, forest floor, blackberries and blueberries... ...intense and complex palate with silky, ripe tannins, opulent, full-bodied texture, and beautiful purity...

96+ Vinous / IWC

...dark, sumptuous and super-expressive... ...Mocha, violet, blueberry and dried herbs add the final shades of nuance. Surprisingly open for such a young wine, the 2013 impresses for its sublime balance.

92James Suckling

...plenty of ripe fruit, blue fruit and walnut undertones. Full body, lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.

90Wine Spectator

Offers a distinctive charry oak frame, imparting a core of smoky oak and dried berry flavors. The mix of plum and wild berry notes peeks through the wood and tannins at the very end.


United States, California, Napa Valley

Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C. Yount planted grapes and began producing wine commercially. Other winemaking pioneers followed in the late 19th century, including the founders of Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyards. An infestation of phylloxera, an insect that attacks vine roots, and the onset of Prohibition nearly wiped out the nascent Napa wine industry in the early 20th century. But by the late 1950s and early 1960s Robert Mondavi and other visionaries were producing quality wines easily distinguishable from the mass-produced jug wines made in California’s Central Valley. Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA. Many grapes grow well in Napa’s Mediterranean climate, but the region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is also very successfully cultivated, and about 30% of the AVA’s acreage is planted to white grapes, with the majority of those grapes being Chardonnay,
