"...a stunner. This wine bursts from the glass with blackberries, cassis, grilled herbs, smoke and licorice which are all beautifully woven together."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2012
"A great Cabernet that will proudly stand beside the best of Napa Valley. So good to drink now, you might forget to age it, but don't."
- Wine Enthusiast, July 2012
"Smooth, lush and ripe with sweet plum, juicy acidity and great depth; rich, dense and spicy with intensity and balance."
- The Tasting Panel, September 2012
"...gets better and better the longer you sit with it in the glass. Starts off with purple fruit and juiciness in the tannins as the firm fruit comes into focus."
- Wine & Spirits, February 2011
The Alexander Valley experienced another ideal growing season in 2013. The long season provided moderate temperatures for the grapes to ripen at the optimal speed. The result is another stellar vintage defined by clean, outstanding fruit characteristics with balanced bright acidity to sugar levels. The 2013 Samantha’s Sauvignon Blanc has complex aromas of pear, fresh flowers, dried citrus and honeysuckle. The bright acidity is balanced with a layered texture and minerality that pushes through the smooth finish, and is complemented with flavors of ripe grapefruit, fresh peaches and lemon drops on the palate.
