2015 - Tiny crop and big flavor

2015 Touché - Napa Valley     (Only 600 bottles were made)

96 points (The Wine Advocate- RobertParker.com)

"A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot coming from Diamond Mountain, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Touche was aged for 27 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts from the glass with gregarious plum preserves, creme de cassis and blackberry pie scents plus underlying notions of Chinese five spice, potpourri, dark chocolate and tapenade and a waft of smoked meats. Very big, full-bodied and laden with black fruit preserves, the palate delivers loads of exotic spice sparks and a firm, grainy frame, finishing very long and layered, One for the hedonists! - Lisa Perotti-Brown

2015 Le Bijou du Roi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - Diamond Mountain

96 points (The Wine Advocate - RobertParker.com)

"Coming from the Sori Bricco Vineyard on Diamond Mountain and containing a splash (.5%) of Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Bijou du Roi was aged for 27 months in French oak, 80% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with bold red currant jelly, warm cassis and blackberry tart scents plus fragrant suggestions of cinnamon stick, cigar box, rose hip tea, pencil shavings and wood smoke. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and jam-packed with black and red fruit preserves layers, it has a gorgeous plush frame and seamless freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully perfumed." - Lisa Perotti-Brown

2015 Adamus - Diamond Mountain

92 points (The Wine Advocate - RobertParker.com)

"Composed of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot coming from the Sori Bricco Vineyard on Diamond Mountain, the 2015 Adamus was aged for 27 months in French oak barrels, 50% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose sings of kirsch, black raspberries, baked plums and blueberry preserves with hints of cloves, raisin cake, camphor, pencil lead and mossy tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with berry preserves and spice box layers, framed by grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note." - Lisa Perotti-Brown
