92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The impressive 2012 Reserve Tapestry, a blend of Bordeaux varietals, is more elegant and slightly less intense than the Private Reserve. It offers up sweet black cherry fruit notes intermixed with licorice, spice box and dusty, loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied and deep with loads of ripe fruit, low acidity and sweet, velvety tannins, it can be enjoyed over the next decade.

There is no question that Beaulieu Vineyards, an iconic estate in Rutherford that made so many great Cabernet Sauvignons in the fifties, sixties and early seventies, is returning to form. A lot of the credit must go to the brilliant international wine consultant, Michel Rolland, who works primarily on the Private Reserve program. The current group of 2012s showcase that beautiful vintage very nicely." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2014)

"Sleek, featuring pure black cherry and black currant fruit, with a lovely graphite frame and a lingering black tea note on the perfumy finish. Drink now through 2014. 500 cases imported." – JM (Web Only - 20130

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The personal project of oenologists Philippe Cambie and Gilles Ferran, the 2011 Calendal will not make anyone forget the brilliant 2009 and 2010, but this equal part blend of Mourvedre and Grenache aged 12 months in older barrels comes from the famous Plan de Dieu, essentially a vast ocean of vines (mostly Grenache) situated between Rasteau and Courthezon. Lovely, soft berry fruit intermixed with lavender and other Provencal herbs, damp earth and spicy pepper notes give way to a medium-bodied, soft, complex, easygoing red to drink over the next 2-3 years. About 500 cases are exported to the United States." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Jun 2012)

94-97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Syrah Relentless, which has not yet been bottled, is a blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Petite Sirah. In keeping with this amazing year, it’s full-bodied, juicy, succulent, flamboyant, with blueberry and blackberry fruit galore, lots of glycerin and a massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness or astringency characterize this stunning wine. This should turn out to be a great, great Rhône Ranger when released in a year or so." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2014)

90 Points- Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and blueberry aromas display very good clarity and a touch of cracked pepper. Showing its Syrah component, with sappy black and blue fruit flavors sharpened by a spicy nuance. A sexy floral note comes up on a gently tannic finish that lingers with very good persistence. As usual, this wine punches well above its category and should reward at least another four or five years of patience." -- Josh Raynolds (Feb 2015)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A joint venture between Gassier, Philippe Cambie, and importer Eric Solomon, the 2012 Cercius Vieilles Vignes is a year in, year out ridiculous value that also drinks well past its humble price point. Comprised of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that was aged for 6 months in concrete, it has loads of raspberry, licorice, mineral and Provencal herbs as well as a soft, supple and silky textured feel on the palate. Coming from old Grenache vines (70-90 years in age) located on the Plateau de Domazan - which lies on the right bank of the Rhone river, just west of Avignon – and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it is a quintessential Cotes du Rhone that will deliver the goods for 4-5 years, possibly longer." - Jeb Dunnuck (Dec 2013)

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An iron fist in a velvet glove, this wine begins with a supple, rich core of currant, black cherry, anise and sage, firming up with tannins from oak and grape. Glides along gracefully, never losing the core fruitiness, while the tannins and gravelly earth accents lend the flavors tension and traction. Drink now through 2029. 7,269 cases made." – JL (Web Only - 2015)

Fabulous aromas of plums, prunes, Christmas pudding and berries. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and intense finish. Polished and refined. Give this wine two or three years to soften.

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Revealing the great blending skills of Beringer’s winemaking team, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a winner. Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well. The 1991, one of the great successes of that vintage, is still aging beautifully at nearly 25 years of age. The sensational 2012 (10,000 cases) boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of charcoal, burning embers, crme de cassis, chocolate, blackberries and licorice. The long, complex, compelling, full-bodied texture along with terrific purity and a savory, rich mouthfeel result in a classic, quintessential Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 20-25 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2014)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Redolent of dried currant and sandalwood, this is a vibrant, gutsy red, featuring of deep vein of cocoa powder. Exhibits an elegant texture, with a finish that lingers with fig and olive notes. Drink now through 2019. 2,500 cases made." – KM (Nov 30, 2014)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Tasted side-by-side with the Neyen 2009, this younger wine is more vital and strapping. Spicy aromas of herbal berry and cassis come with a tree-bark accent. This is well cut but delivers good body and weight, while flavors of herbal plum and berry are spicy and finish earthy and loamy. Drink through 2020.' - Michael Schachner (11/1/2014)
