95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A crazy good value, the 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is the appellation release from this team, and it comes from all of the estate vineyards across the Green Valley, Laguna Ridge, and Sebastopol regions. Complex notes of strawberries, cranberries, violets, pine forest, and flowers all flow to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir that has a kiss of salinity and marine notes, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This beautiful wine competes with wines costing 2-3 times the price." - Jeb Dunnuck (6/14/2019)

89 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Offers a core of steeped black currant and licorice notes, picking up tobacco and minerally details on the sneakily long finish. Needs a touch of cellaring for this to drop its toast. Best from 2020 through 2022. 28,000 cases made." — JM (Oct 15, 2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of warm cassis, baked blueberries and plum preserves plus hints of cigar box, pencil lead and wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has great bags of juicy fruit with a chewy texture and just enough freshness, finishing on an uncomplicated blackberry note. 310,000 cases were made." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (9th Apr 2020)

90 Points - Vinous:
"Brilliant yellow. Aromas of fresh peach and honeydew melon are given urgency by hints of chalky minerals and lemon pith. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering pliant melon and pit fruit flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Finishes silky and long, with a discreet floral note hanging on."

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"One of the flagship cuvées from this estate that’s produced in every vintage, the 2015 Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo and the rest Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano that spent 24 months in used French and American oak. Blackberries, currants, cigar wrapper, cedar box, and hints of vanilla all flow to a medium-bodied, concentrated, beautiful Rioja that has ripe tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. You couldn't go wrong with a case of this." - Jeb Dunnuck (9/6/2019)

Notes from the Winemaker:
We fermented the first 80% of our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc in stainless steel at very cold temperatures to preserve delightfully fresh and exotic aromas of lychee fruit, guava and lemongrass, plus an alluring note of wet stone, all complimented by honeysuckle and tangerine from a splash of Viognier in our final blend. Additional flavors of white peach, ripe pear and lingering lime round out the palate experience. The remaining 20% was barrel-fermented at warmer temperatures, producing a beautiful texture to envelop the vibrant acidity and make for a balanced and richly satisfying sip from start to finish.
