Accolades

2014 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc Beckstoffer-Melrose Vineyard, Napa Valley
92 Points - Wine Enthusiast, 12/31/2015

“With Kirk Venge as winemaker and Beckstoffer grapes at its core, this intriguing new project is out the gates with a rocking wine, a compelling and complex mix of lemongrass and hard lemon candy that gets more inviting in the glass. Light-bodied, crisp and focused, it offers a twist of New Zealand-like grass that never gets out of hand, becoming a delight on the palate instead.” - Virginie Boone

Silver Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition


2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Laki's Vineyard, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley
95 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2015

“An absolutely brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon from southern Napa Valley and the Oak Knoll area, this 2013 tips the scales at 15% alcohol. It has a dense purple color, a gorgeous nose of crème de cassis, graphite, blackberry and a touch of oak and a full-bodied, opulent, voluptuous texture, great purity and a stunning finish. This is sensational stuff and a terrific 2013. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.” - Robert Parker


2013 Estate Syrah Oak Knoll Vineyard, Napa Valley
90 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2015

“The inky ruby/purple-colored 2013 Syrah has a stunning nose of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and licorice. It is juicy, full-bodied, pure and quite elegant for its 14.5% natural alcohol. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.” - Robert Parker

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast, 2/1/2016

“Inky, rich and dense, this wine has an abundance of red and black berry pie going on that makes it decadently inviting. Thick on the palate, it's ready to pair with saucy cuts of meat, its background note of smoke the ideal way to bring out charred flavors in a food.” - Virginie Boone

Silver Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition


2013 Chardonnnay Dutton Ranch, Russian River Valley
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast, 3/1/2016

“Lemon meringue and custard provide decadence to this vineyard-designated wine, the site planted to decades-old vines. It becomes sublime as it opens, spicy and soft in quince and Asian pear. The finish returns to the opening theme, delivering a punch of caramel.” - Virginie Boone

Double Gold Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition


2012 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Laki's Vineyard, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast,2/1/2016

“While soft and approachable, this wine also offers a density of black currant and cherry that gives significant power and juicy exuberance. Sizable tannins risk overtaking the fruit, but never do, with the oak imparting a jolt of smokiness on the finish.” - Virginie Boone

Gold Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition


2012 Pinot Noir Bacigalupi Vineyard, Russian River Valley
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast, 2/1/2016

“The first Pinot Noir release from this producer, this is a velvety-smooth, exotic and charming wine, light on the palate despite a concentration of ripe, rich fruit. Kirsch, cherry, raspberry and cinnamon combine to make the wine invitingly lush and plush.” - Virginie Boone

Gold Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
