Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa may be the lightest example I have tasted since Randy Dunn began making his blockbuster Cabs in 1979. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color, medium body, moderate levels of cassis fruit, and a tight, hard, narrow finish that will never flesh out. Although it will hold up for 10-12 years, there is clearly a lack of intensity/substance to this otherwise cleanly made lightweight.

An interesting point of trivia is that Randy Dunn’s production of approximately 4,000 cases of Napa and Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon per year has not changed since the winery’s inception ... somewhat refreshing in view of the American cultural tendency to think that “bigger is better.” - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2003)

93-90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Ruby-red, not darker than the 2001. Nose shows a wilder fruit character, with notes of cassis and licorice. Fat, sweet and dense, conveying an impression of lower acidity than the 2001. A fruit bomb of a cabernet in the making. Very rich and long on the aftertaste." -Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun 04)

"Mocha, espresso, cloves and blackberry jam are some of many nuances that emerge from the 2010 Red Blend. A deep, rich wine, the 2010 boasts stunning aromatics, beautifully chiseled fruit and fabulous overall balance. I sense a slightly less sweet, overt style than in previous years, yet at the same time, there is plenty of richness in the glass. I suspect the 2010 will still be going strong at age 20. Today, it is flat-out gorgeous. The 2010 is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2012)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Marked by ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and tar flavors, this red is graceful and detailed, with the fruit intensity persisting on the finish. This is well-integrated, and just needs time for the tannins to soften. Excellent length. Best from 2018 through 2030. 2,333 cases made." - BS (Web Only - 2015)

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Deep garnet-purple in color and projecting intense aromas of creme de cassis, warm black plums and blueberry compote enhanced by hints of tar, aniseed, smoked meat and even a slight lift of honeysuckle, the full-bodied 2010 Descendent is already displaying great harmony at this early stage as it fills the mouth with perfumed black fruits supported by medium to firm, rounded tannins and balanced acid. It finishes very long. Approachable now and drink to 2024+. (Feb. 2014)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni
"Freshly cut flowers, mint, pine, crushed rocks and small red berries lift from the glass in the 2011 Barbaresco Vie Erte. The flavors are bright and crystalline throughout. Despite the warm vintage, the Vie Erte retains gorgeous freshness and energy. There is a lot to like in this precise, mid-weight Barbaresco from Cigliuti. The Vie Erte spent 26 months in cask, quite long by today's standards in Barbaresco, where the minimum oak requirement has come down to nine months from twelve." - Antonio Galloni (August 2014)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Full bright yellow. Perfumed aromas of peach, fresh apricot, soft citrus fruits, flowers, nutmeg and iodine. Intensely flavored and savory, with stone fruit and spice flavors complicated by a musky leesy element. Not hugely intense or penetrating today but gracefully made." - Stephen Tanzer (May 2014)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Pale gold. Pungent lemon rind, jasmine and tarragon scents show good clarity and a spicy nuance. Chewy and dry on the palate, offering bitter pear skin and citrus fruit flavors that flesh out and deepen with air. Firm, focused and nervy on the finish, leaving behind chalky mineral and quinine notes. This zesty white wine has the heft to handle richer foods but also the incisive character to work with light, fresh seafood or vegetable dishes." - Josh Raynolds (July 2014)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This wine is already balanced, rich and structured. Acidity, honey and yellow fruits are well integrated. At the same time, aging potential is there with the dry core, firm texture and the strong final acidity. Drink from 2020." - Roger Voss (5/1/2015)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"This is a Sauternes that shows a depth of fruit and balance, with beautiful dried-apple, pineapple and mango character. Full body, very sweet and concentrated. Intense sweet wine. Best Filhot ever? Try in 2017." - (February 19th, 2014)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2010 Proprietary Red Terzetto, a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, is a fruit-forward, hedonistic red offering lots of strawberry and black cherry fruit, a forest floor-like character, sweet tannin and round, medium to full-bodied flavors. No doubt the Cabernet Franc provides uplift and ethereal complexity to the wine’s interesting aromatics. With beautiful sweet tannin, some sucrosity and plenty of appeal, it will drink well for 8-12 years. One does not see many wines from Chiles Valley, especially Cabernets, at this level of quality." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2013)
