2013 Vintage - Winemaker's Tasting Notes:
Refreshing and full-bodied, the 2013 Stewart Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay has initial aromas of wet sandstone leading into a full bouquet of white peach and hazelnut. The rich palate boasts flavors of honeydew and nectarine with just the slightest undertone of apricot. Well-structured acidity and nuanced French oak give this wine great texture and length. Lovely upon first release with enough structure to age for years to come, this Chardonnay promises to be a welcomed addition to any meal or cellar.

"A classic, gorgeous dry RosŽ from this great estate, the 2015 Bandol Rose sports a light pink color to go with a lots of pretty strawberry, tangerine and orange blossom-like aromas and flavors. Clean, crisp, nicely textured and with a great finish, it is a terrific RosŽ that readers should buy by the case." - Jeb Dunnuck (May 2016)

89-91 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"Pure, bright yellow. Aromas of crushed rock and ginger. Sweet, ripe and satisfying, offering considerable early appeal to its stone fruit and spice flavors. Much more tender than the Petit Chablis and totally different in style. Should make an outstanding and complete village wine." - Stephen Tanzer (June 2015)

98 Points - James Suckling:
“Loads of dark tobacco aromas with blackcurrants and black olives. Boysenberries, too. Full to medium body, ultra-fine tannins and lots of flavors of smoke, dried roasted chillis, black truffles, mushrooms and fruit. Bright acidity on the finish. Sexy and subtle austerity. Alluring. Very approachable now but better in 2021." - (January 27, 2017)

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Made strictly according to the Sangiovese playbook, the Il Marroneto 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows that exacting Sangiovese precision and personality. This is Alessandro Mori's greatest talent. He takes this workhorse grape and gives it a platform to articulate its most hidden and intricate inner feelings and sentiments. This is a bright and very tight red wine that will benefit from more years to flesh out further. All those budding aromas of wild berry, licorice, cola, and blue flower are strategically in place and ready to explode in time. The wine opens to a luminous dark ruby color and a compact mouthfeel that is spicy and fresh on the close. This is an impressive annata wine that shows the personal evolution of a man and his estate." - Monica Larner (28th Feb 2017)

96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Enticing from the first aromas of fresh cherry, violet and spice, this supple red is balanced and expressive. Matches an elegant frame with a firm backbone of tannins and lively acidity. Very persistent on the long, detailed aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2036. 2,280 cases made." – BS (Web Only - 2017)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2010 Barolo Liste is utterly seductive and charming from start to long finish. This wine awards a high pleasure quota with the proverbial opulence and hedonistic plumpness that is not easy to achieve with the austere Nebbiolo grape. The Liste vineyard delivers the natural characteristics that are appropriate for dark and shapely wines. Thick extraction is followed by dark fruit, pressed blackberry, exotic spice, cola and balsam herb. It ages for two years in oak and two years in bottle, but it needs more time to lose its baby fat." -ML (6/2015)
Damilano Barolo "Cannubi" D.O.C.G. 2011 (Piedmont, Italy) - [RP 93] [WS 93] [AG 91]

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Damilano's 2011 Barolo Cannubi does a great job of presenting the specific qualities that are most commonly associated with this historic vineyard site. The wine shows elegance, grace and a feminine frame that is toned, lean and muscular. The Damilano family does not own land in Cannubi and in fact they rent their acreage for a monthly sum that must indeed be hefty. But Cannubi has grown in fame partly due to the dedicated efforts of this hardworking estate. The 2011 vintage shows warm tones of leather and tobacco with candied fruit, licorice, cola and dark blackberry. Sweet spice and delicate cinnamon appear on the long finish." -Monica Larner (Jun 2015)

93 Points & Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2014 Vintage):
"The wine comes from a parcel that is less than an acre. Vines aged for 45 years on average have created a structured, concentrated wine with powerful tannins and dark, black fruits. It is a wine for serious aging, It's unlikely to be ready before 2020." - Roger Voss (12/31/2016)
