Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, Viking estate vineyard, 2014
92-94 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The wine shows a saturated fruitiness and plump texture with a sense of crystallized blackberries and melted licorice leading to a long finish accenting the mocha-like richness of fine cigar tobacco wrapper and graphite tinged soft tannins. A pedigreed wine of breeding it demonstrates the potential of the vineyard in the hands of master winemaker. Drink now through 2029.

Syrah Signature, Anna's Estate Vineyard, 2014
91 points, Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine
Syrah 95%, Viognier 5%. Harvested at night, the fruit was hand sorted, de-stemmed, and co-fermented with 5% Viognier. Following a period of maceration on the skins, the “free run” wine was moved to a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels for 18 months. Deeply colored and densely fruited this masculine wine exhales textbook aromatics of blueberries, smoke and bacon which are reconfirmed in the fleshy, savory flavors of blackberries, salami, leather, and black pepper.

Anna's Red Signature, Anna's Estate Vineyard, 2014
Mourvèdre 39%, Syrah 33%, Grenache 26%, Petite Sirah 2%. Inspired by the top cuvees of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this reverse engineered GSM blend showcases the synergies of these varieties. Anna’s Estate Vineyard features mountain elevation and steep south facing exposures, all the better to maximize vine stress, thick skins and flavor intensity. The wine delivers the savory flavors of a game infused blackberry reduction with hints of Herbs-de-Provence and campfire smoke. Drink now through 2020.
