Ratings & Reviews
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Expect exciting things from this Bordeaux-focused label by Thomas Fogarty Winery. This offers scents of blueberry, boysenberry and purple flowers such as lilac and lavender. It’s dainty yet dynamic on the palate, with blue fruit and espresso, restrained and elegant throughout." - Matt Kettmann (4/1/2015)

90 Points - Antonio Galloni:

"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Gist Ranch Estate is the most complete of the three single variety wines in the range. Firm tannins lend support in a beautifully textured, inviting red. Hints of lavender, violets, cloves, new leather and menthol add the final layers of nuance on the deep, dense finish." - Antonio Galloni (May 2014)

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Incorporating 20% Merlot and aged 22 months in 28% new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Gist Ranch Vineyard has an herbal edge to its pretty bouquet of cassis, raspberries, underbrush, pepper and graphite. Medium-bodied, elegant, seamless and balanced, it's a pretty, forward and easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon that will evolve nicely on its overall balance." - Jeb Dunnuck (Oct 2015)
