Ethos Reserve 2016 Ethos Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine & Spirits, 2019

91 Points, “Year's Best US Cabernet/Blends” - December 1

A powerful wine, more than half of which is sourced from old vines at Cold Creek Vineyard (planted in 1972), this is concentrated and lavishly oaked, yielding smoky intensity to go along with its dark, rich tannins.

Single Vineyards 2016 Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine & Spirits, 2019

92 Points, “Best Buy” - December 1

A lot of wine for the money, this is rich and generous right from its initial scents of figs and macerated plums. It feels ripe and concentrated, yet it never goes over the top, reined in by a sumptuous caramelly oak component, neither overbearing nor overt, that gives it the stuffing to age.

Single Vineyards 2016 Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Spectator, 2019

91 Points - November 30

Polished and well-structured, with lively black cherry, green tea, toasty and spice flavors that flesh out on the finish, ending with refined tannins.

Indian Wells 2016 Indian Wells Red Wine Blend

Wine & Spirits, 2019

88 Points - November 1

Composed of mostly syrah and merlot, with a smattering of other red varieties, this is thick and meaty, with the concentration and density for sauce-slathered barbecue.

“Best Buy” - December 1, 2019

Single Vineyards 2017 Horse Heaven Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Wine Enthusiast, 2019

90 Points, “Best Buy” - November 1

Aromas of grass, grapefruit and herb lead to a crisp citrus flavor on the full-bodied palate. These tones carry on the finish. Best Buy. —S.S.

Limited Release 2017 Mimi Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast, 2019

87 Points - November 1

The aromas are unusual, with notes of scorched earth and soil, showing reduction that distracts. Over time, bittersweet chocolate, cherry and herb notes emerge. The palate shows a reserved sense of styling, exhibiting polish and balance. A light grip of tannins pulls it all together. It’s in an awkward spot at present. —S.S.

Eroica 2016 Eroica XLC Dry Riesling

Wine Enthusiast, 2019

88 Points - November 1

This is the inaugural release of this wine, made with extended lees contact in upright oak casks. Starting out reduced, it opens up to reveal aromas of slate, lemongrass, lemon, wilted flower and a whiff of diesel. Bone-dry, layered citrus and red-apple flavors follow, stretching out the finish.

Single Vineyards 2016 Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast, 2019

90 Points - November 1

Aromas of vanilla, herb, cherry and baking spice are followed by a full-bodied palate. The tightly wound tannins need some time to unspool. The oak plays prominently, but it’s quite tasty with coffee lingering on the finish. Give it a short decant if drinking in the near term. —S.S.

Ethos Reserve 2015 Ethos Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast, 2019

91 Points - November 1

Appealing aromas of dark coffee grounds, cherry and spice are out front. Rich, full-bodied, powerpacked fruit flavors follow, with dense firmly wound tannins backing them up. It shows the best of this often challenging vintage. Best after 2023. Decant if drinking in the near term. —S.S.

Wine Enthusiast, 2019

88 Points - October 1

There's no mistaking the variety, with its notes of lime leaf, flowers, red apple and whiffs of diesel. Off-dry but leaning sweeter fruit flavors follow. There's a pleasing sense of acidity that brings it all together.

Wine Enthusiast, 2019

Vanilla and clarified butter aromas are out front along with barrel notes of baking spice on this wood-driven wine. The palate shows more of the same, with slightly sweet fruit flavors. It's all about the oak and style.
