Ratings

Wine Enthusiast 93 pts - This is a tart, fresh and full-bodied wine that shows off the Rutherford appellation in its lush dustiness and firm, integrated tannin. Coconut shavings and crisp red fruit complement classic characteristics of cedar and dried herb.

Wine Spectator 90 pts - Pure, rich and vivid blackberry and wild berry flavors are tightly focused, supple and graceful. Ends with a long, tapered finish. Drink now through 2022.

About the Winery 

Through four generations, the Terlatos have brought the world’s finest wines to the American table as importers, marketers and vintners. Rather than focusing on a single grape or place, Tony Terlato and his family have assembled an all-star team of winemakers with the tools to create best-in-class wines from iconic appellations – to capture “magic in a glass,” as Tony says. These wines reflect the family’s highest values, and their vision of all that can be realized from soil, grape and commitment.
