Review: Wine Enthusiast

93 Points: 2018 Native Red

Editor’s Choice

“This polished but full-bodied wine accelerates from light earth, leather, and plum aromas to rich, broad flavors of dark chocolate, mushrooms, and black cherries. Made with a field blend of traditional California grape varieties, its concentration, depth, and complexity are compelling.”

92 Points: 2018 Grenache, El Dorado

“This is a nicely structured, well-balanced wine with some nervy acidity to complement mouthwatering raspberry and cranberry flavors. Medium body and moderate tannins give it a good, grippy texture. ”

92 Points: 2018 Mourvedre, El Dorado

Editor’s Choice

“Opulent plum, blueberry, and black-cherry flavors give this full-bodied and moderately tannic wine lots to like, while moderate tannins add balance and grip. It’s an outstanding example of an underappreciated varietal.”

91 Points: 2018 Eighteen Sixty-One

“Floral and fruity notes compete for attention in this flavorful, full-bodied Rhône-style blend as moderate tannins support rose petal, strawberry, and concentrated black cherry on the palate. Best through 2024.”

91 Points: 2018 Zinfandel

“This forthright wine showcases the classic Zin characteristics of wild berries and black pepper on a firm texture of fruit acidity and moderate tannins. It is well balanced and ready for almost any occasion.”

90 Points: 2019 Viognier

“Creamy in flavor and mouthfeel, this medium-bodied wine is like a liquid apple tart, offering vanilla, baked apple, and croissant flavors on a rich, smooth texture.”
