Bursting with blackberries, our 2014 Soberanes is more jubilant than brooding. With layers of cola, sarsaparilla, cigar box, and cedar, this wine is nuanced and deep. Berries, mocha, and dried herbs lift the palate. She reveals complexity in the glass and smoothness on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
93 Points: Hearty sagebrush, rust and dust meet with dried Montgomery cherry and tart pomegranate aromas on the nose of this bottling from a Healdsburg-based producer. It’s luscious on the palate with ripe plum fruit and tons of baking spice, from cinnamon to clove cream, nutmeg and vanilla.
91 Points: Weaves together a firm mix of dusty berry, cedar, raspberry and anise flavors. Deftly balanced, long and persistent on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
91 Points: Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Soberanes Vineyard has a lovely potpourri, kirsch and underbrush perfume with hints of wild thyme and damp loam. Light to medium-bodied, it has a very soft-spoken character, with beautifully silken tannins and great persistence.
