Cabernet Sauvignon signature, Viking Estate Vineyard, 2015
93 points, Jeb Dunnuck
The wine is a deep blueish-red with a violet perfume revealing the purity of just-picked mountain blueberries and blackberries accented by vanilla, white chocolate and sweet cedar. Aeration or decanting are recommended for current drinking revealing further aromatic complexity, expanding the range of mid-palate layers and exposing a smorgasbord of liqueur-like blue-black fruits, cocoa and toasty notes. A wine with good bone structure, drink now through 2030.

Syrah Signature, Anna's Estate Vineyard, 2015
92+ points, Jeb Dunnuck
In the glass, the wine has a sheer voluptuous silkiness, deep saturated purple color with a classic roasted meat and violet nose, reinforced in the mouth with flavors of smoked meat, dark plums, north African spices, green peppercorns and a finishing note of hickory smoked bacon. Pair with grilled leg of lamb rubbed with North African spice paste or a beef ribeye with crushed peppercorn crust. Drink now through 2025.

Syrah 65%, Mourvèdre 28%, Grenache Noir 7%. Aged for 18 months in large French oak puncheons, this wine is a bolder statement than our regular Version blend, the Reserve reminds us of a Northern Rhône, a bit mischievous, but nevertheless memorable with aromas of blackberries, red licorice, sage, and whole leaf Chinese black tea. It is followed by flavors of plum & blackberry compote, veal stock, roasted thyme, and vanilla bean extract. Drink now or hold up to 2020.
