Baer Ursa 2012
#28 Wine Spectator Top 100, 94 points
"The core glows with ripe blackberry, dark plum, mint and floral flavors, gliding over lightly prickly tannins into the long and compelling finish. Feels almost weightless, but has tremendous depth."

92-95 points Wine Advocate
"...pretty, layered, medium to full-bodied and elegant 2013 that has perfumed raspberry, pepper, dried herbs and assorted floral aromas and flavors."
Owen Roe Red Willow 1973 Block
Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, Avalon favorite
Amazing concentration and richness. The nose opens with black cherry and floral notes before the supple black fruit hits your palate, coating it with suave and velvety cassis, licorice, purple flowers, mocha, and dried herbs. Made from a special block of old vines in Red Willow Vineyard, planted in 1973.
Cadence Camerata 2012
95 points Wine Spectator
"Vibrant, focused and aristocratic, centering on generous plum, currant, blackberry and floral aromas and flavors that play out against well-modulated, crisp tannins. Has presence and excellent length."
AMaurice William Ivey 2012
94 points Wine Spectator
"Focused, expressive and powerful, this bursts with blueberry, black plum, cherry, floral and dark chocolate flavors that come together seamlessly on a long and layered finish."
Saviah Walla Walla Syrah 2012
93 points Wine Spectator
"Supple and generous, with a streak of tarry, stony minerality coursing through the ripe cherry and plum flavors, mingling seamlessly as the finish rolls on."
