Reviewed by Wine Enthusiast editor, Steve Heimoff, our 2010 Sangiovese received 90 POINTS!
Here's what Steve had to say about this 90 POINT wine:
"Lots of smooth drinking pleasure in this Sangiovese. In fact, it does just what this Italian variety is supposed to. It's medium-bodied and silky, with great acidity and a firm brace of tannins, and has a transparency that seems to reflect the soil. The cherry and red currant flavors are savory and pure. A little hot, but one of the most pleasant Sangioveses on the market." --S.H. (10/1/2013)

Reviewed by Wine Enthusiast Editor, Steve Heimoff, our 2012 Albarino received 88 POINTS and 'Editors' Choice' Award!
Here's what Steve had to say about the Albarino:
"The tart acidity, clean minerality and intense citrus, green apple, kiwi, honey and goosdeberry flavors immediately suggest a cool growing area. Edna Valley it is, with excellent results. The wine has no trace of oak, so what you get is brisk, mouthwatering fruit and a dry finish." --S.H. (10/1/2013)
