96 Points & #16 of Top 100 of 2016 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Unctuous and ripe, showing mouthfilling flavors of almond cream, ginger, heather honey and apricot, this will need time to unwind fully, but when it does, expect more pineapple, maple and singed orange notes, as this has some depth and power in reserve, as well as more than enough cut for balance. A beauty in the making. Best from 2018 through 2038. 2,833 cases made." - JM (Mar 31, 2016)

92 Points & #77 Top 100 Wines of 2016 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Intense, with roasted almond, Brazil nut and walnut notes lending this a slightly burly aspect, while gunpowder tea, bitter orange and almond accents add a taut feel through the finish. This is a distinctive, edgy version that Sherry geeks will dig. Drink now. 1,500 cases made." — JM (Dec. 31, 2016)

92-94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Saturated ruby. Potent black and blue fruit, cola, olive and smoky Indian spice aromas are lifted by a suggestion of cracked pepper. Sappy, pliant and appealingly sweet, offering ripe blueberry and cherry compote flavors that tighten up steadily with air. Rich yet energetic, showing strong closing punch and velvety tannins that fold smoothly into sappy dark fruit on the impressively long finish." - Josh Raynolds (March 2016)

BLOCK W
93 Points & Rank #63 100 Wines of 2015 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This distinctive white shows a wide range of yellow apple, white ginger and quince notes, with intriguing blanched almond, Brazil nut and dried citrus peel flavors slightly reminiscent of Sherry. Very fresh and energetic, showing no oxidation. A lovely combination of ripeness and cut. Only available in 3-pack with other Single Vineyard Series bottlings. Drink now through 2020." - JM (Feb 28, 2015)

BLOCK A
91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A ripe, toasty style, with lots of ginger and warm brioche notes giving way to hazelnut, creamed peach and glazed pear flavors. The big, broad finish has enough of a bitter orange echo to stay honest. Only available in 3-pack with other Single Vineyard Series bottlings. Drink now through 2016." - JM (Feb 28, 2015)

BLOCK S2
92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This comes off as superripe and languid, with creamed peach, pear and apple fruit, a zippy ginger spine, and a lingering bitter orange note that lends cut and definition to the finish. Shows some toast but maintains crunchy acidity for balance. Impressive. Only available in 3-pack with other Single Vineyard Series bottlings. Drink now through 2020. " - JM (Feb 28,
