94 points James Halliday: "The youthful colour has the depth to promise abundant black fruits, whole berry fermentation underlining the promise. It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet."

The fruit is equally savory in currant and plum, with a dusting of dark chocolate. Enjoy now–2029. *Editors' Choice* (VB)" (11/2019) 92-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the barrel samples, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, elegant wine that lacks the richness of the 2015 yet has perfumed notes of red and black currants, spring flowers, and spice. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Peti...

2016 Rhys "Alesia" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Alesia Pinot Noir Anderson Valley is unabashedly delicious, bursting with fragrant aromas of dried flowers, raspberries, wild plums and sweet forest floor. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, supple and satiny, with a juicy core of succulent, mouthwatering fruit that's framed by melting tannins. This bottling is already expressive, and I'd expect it to drink well for a decade, perhaps more. Note that this vintage hails entirely from Kevin Harvey's Bearwallow Vineyard … beginning with the 2016 vinta...

2016 Bootleg Napa Valley Red Blend

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Red Wine is a Merlot-dominated blend (there are normally small amounts of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and other varieties), and while the Prequel cuvée focuses on Sonoma, this wine comes all from the Napa side of the valley. It reveals a healthy purple color as well as a terrific bouquet of sweet crème de cassis, toasted bread, Asian spices, lavender, and dried herbs. With a fabulous texture, full body, notable purity of fruit, and a rich yet graceful style on the palate, it's one seriously hedonistic yet balanced, complex red t...

Connoisseurs Guide: "Very much in the same camp as its “Sascha Marie” cellarmate insofar as it favors ripeness over subtlety and nuance, this wine is, again, one that is both fairly full and slightly soft in structure and counts overt richness first among its achievements. It, too, would benefit from a little more vigor and vitality and, while an undeniably tasty Pinot Noir, it is likely to show at its best before too many years have passed."

It would probably be the wine of the vintage if it wasn’t for its big brother. This vibrant gold-colored beauty boasts a huge nose of citrus blossom, tangerine, white flowers, citrus zest, and ample minerality.
