SilverMedal 2012 Northwest Food & Wine Festival

BronzeMedal 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

Estates 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

90 POINTS Wine Advocate

“A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2011 The Estates Cabernet Sauvignon is a rocking value that offers up notions of creme de cassis, licorice, toast and freshly sharpened pencil on the nose. Fruit-forward, medium to full-bodied, voluptuous and with fabulous richness, it’s about as sexy […]

Estates 2011 Merlot

90 POINTS Wine Spectator

“Polished, ripe and opulent, with blueberry and black cherry flavors, and mocha and pepper overtones underlined by sharp acidity. Has intensity and depth. Needs time to soften the edges. Best from 2016 through 2021. 3,000 cases made.” –December 2014

Estates 2012 Northridge Syrah

90 POINTS Wine Spectator

Estates 2012 Clifton Hill Syrah

91 POINTS Wine Spectator

“Firm and focused, channeling the plum and pepper flavors into a narrow beam that keeps glowing as the finish persists against refined tannins. Drink now through 2020. 210 cases made.” – April 2015

Gold Medal 2015 Seattle Wine Awards

Estates 2012 Katherine Leone Syrah

92 POINTS Wine Spectator

“Sleek and racy, with lively acidity set against bright currant and plum fruit, shaded by white pepper, black tea and charcuterie overtones. The fine tannins may soften with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2022. 300 cases made.”  – April 2015

Estates 2012 Evergreen Chardonnay

90 POINTS Wine Spectator

Estates 2013 Viognier

88 POINTS Wine Enthusiast

“An aromatic wine with notes of creamsicle and orange blossom. It’s medium bodied with well delineated stone fruit flavors and a lick of tart acidity that seems surprising for the variety and vintage.” – December 2014

Silver Medal 2014 Tri-Cities Wine Festival

Estates 2013 Evergreen Chardonnay

Sentinel 2011 Red

91 POINTS  Wine Enthusiast

“A Cabernet-based blend, with Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, this offers pleasing aromatic complexity, with notes of coffee, dark fruit and vanilla, accented by floral overtones. The palate is full bodied, with abundant coffee and cherry flavors backed by firm tannis…” -Sean Sullivan
