What others are saying
2010 Hillside Select
“…  Cassis, blackberry, blueberry, mocha and minerals on the nose, along with a mounting component of sweet oak … finishes with utterly seamless, noble tannins and great resounding length.  A great vintage for this perennial star...”
— Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

2011 Relentless
“ … remarkable concentration and balance. With stunning perfume, purity, texture and full-bodied richness … this compelling effort is one of the superstars of the vintage in 2011.”
— Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

2011 One Point Five
“ … big, hearty and complex, with flavors of black raspberries, black cherries, black plums and herbs, ripe tannins, long finish.”
— Fred Tasker, Miami Herald

2012 Merlot
“… another sensational offering … the sweetness of the tannins, the sucrosity of the fruit and the wine’s richness and expansiveness suggest another great vintage in Napa Valley. This is a sensational Merlot.”
— Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate

2012 Red Shoulder Ranch
“Pure, ripe, intense and elegant, offering a mix of green pear, apple, citrus and green fig, with a long, lingering finish.”
— James Laube, Wine Spectator
