2014 Solomon Hills Estate Pinot Noir$66.00WE 93Wine Enthusiast 93: Rhubarb, cranberry and roasted plum aromas meet with gamy hints of grilled boar and toasted oak on the nose of this bottling. Light touches of fennel pollen, bay leaf and dried sage start the sip, followed by more roasted meat and rustic red fruits. It packs great energy and tremendous depth of flavors in a lightweight frame.
2014 Casas del Bosque ‘Gran Bosque Private Reserva’ Cabernet Sauvignon$66.00WS 94Wine Spectator 94: Big, rich and filled with powerful red fruit and savory flavors that are supported by medium-grained tannins. Shows concentrated dark chocolate and creamy notes on the plush and well-spiced finish. Delivers impressive concentration and length. Drink now through 2022. 800 cases made.
2017 Beaux Frères ‘The Beaux Frères Vineyard’ Pinot Noir$122.00WS 95JS 96Wine Spectator 95: Combines structure with verve, offering richly expressive raspberry, violet and orange peel flavors that take on polish and complexity toward well buffed tannins. Drink now through 2028.James Suckling 96: There’s a real sense of depth and detail here with fresh cherries and blueberries, swathed in vanilla-dusted violets, fresh-cut roasting herbs and biscuit spices. The palate has a very plush and smoothly rendered feel with a long, smooth and seamless run of ripe blueberries and cherries. Concentrated and elegant pinot with a long, long finish. Drink across the next decade.
