2011 Villa Creek "High Road - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1191016 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Villa Creek's 2011 High Road is easily one of the wines of the vintage. A GSM blend from James Berry, the High Road is also fascinating, because it shows the stylistic breadth that is capable from this site. Rich, savory and finely knit but never heavy, the 2011 impresses for its combination of power and elegance. The 2010 is a wine of more immediate impact while the 2011 is more subtle, but ultimately even more delicious. In 2011 the Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre components were all co-fermented. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The most impressive of the lineup and only slightly less impressive than the brilliant 2010, the 2011 High Road James Berry Vineyard checks in as a blend of 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre that was fermented with 40% whole cluster and aged in 50% new French oak. Great stuff, with rich cassis, creamy licorice, spice, toast and tinges of chocolate, it’s massive and rich on the palate, with layers of fruit, no hard edges and a very drinkable profile. I don’t think it will make incredibly old bones, but certainly a decade is well within reason here. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Intense spice- and floral-accented aromas of black and blue fruits, Asian spices and woodsmoke, with a bright mineral nuance gaining power with air. Fresh and incisive, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a subtle touch of candied violet. Fine-grained tannins build on a long, juicy finish that eventually ends on a sexy floral note. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2013)
