90 Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This Cabernet Sauvignon's intensity shows immediately through its saturated scarlet appearance and through its warm and inviting nose that offers up aromas of black current, graphite and loam.
Aromas of bright plum and blackberry concentrate jump out of the glass. The dense aromatics yield to spicy dark stone fruit and wet clay which is very typical of our hillside vineyard. We recommend decanting this wine in its youth to release its primary fruit aromas and relax the tannic structure.
Luscious fruit flavors and rich spice balance this wine’s bright acidity.
Our 2015 Pico Creek Merlot is an exquisite rebuttal to those who might forget the noble lineage of this regal grape variety.
Aromas of caramel, raspberry and sweet lavender are released with each swirl in the glass. Herbaceous red fruit and chocolate kick off the flavor profile and are supported with a nice raspberry mid palate that fades to lengthy finish dominated by oak, cinnamon, and maple flavors beneath the beautiful dried fruit.
Our 2016 Muscat of Alexandria reveals enticing and exuberant aromas of mandarin blossoms, peach and honey. On the palate the flavors of ripe tropical fruits are layered harmoniously with zesty citrus undertones.
