2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Viking Vineyard Reseve (92 points- Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine.) This wine defines the term elegance. Singing with a perfect pitch, it emphasizes first and foremost a distinct high toned fruit clarity. The challenging, steep, limestone terroir is reflected in the wine’s rare intensity of varietal flavors. It has quickly thrown off its adolescent gangliness and now shows a sleek and lithe runner’s physique. Starting with berry patch bouquet, the nose quickly develops a liqueur-like suppleness across the palate revealing a black cherry and black currant compote of ripe flavors dusted with sweet baking spices. Enjoy now or cellar through 2019.
2009 Syrah Viking Vineyard Reserve (93 points- Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate.) "The 2009 Syrah Reserve Viking Vineyard emerges from the glass with juicy dark cherries, plums, flowers, leather and savory herbs. It shows a level of nuance, depth and sheer vibrancy that is missing from some of the other wines in this lineup. Layers of fruit build to the rich, intense finish. This is a terrific showing from Adelaida. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019." Antonio Galloni. The Wine Advocate. Aug. 2012
