90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a substantial wine, from the deep-gold color to the vivid apricot and toasted-almond aromas, to the full body, rounded texture and lingering finish. Savory flavors like consomme, walnuts and minerals add complexity to the fruity components, so it keeps unfolding with each sip." - JG (11/1/2017)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Juicy, expressive and layered, the 2011 Pinot Noir Julia's Vineyard impresses for its silky fruit, perfumed aromatics and lovely overall balance. Absolutely nothing is out of place in a gracious, mid-weight Pinot with tons of near term appeal. A high-toned, floral-infused finish nicely balances the exuberant fruit. This is another fabulous value from Cambria." (July 2013)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A wine with very polished tannins and ripe fruit of plums and chillies. Full body, a medium chewy texture and a medium finish. Better in 2015." - (December 20th, 2013)

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice notes are laced together in the 2011 Syrah Borgo. This is an especially supple, sexy Syrah with tons of near-term appeal. The 2011 isn't especially complex or varietal, but it sure is delicious. Best of all, the Borgo is a fabulous value." - Antonio Galloni (May 2014)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"One of the most delicious whites of Tuscany, the 2014 shows lots of lemon and melon character with bright acidity and a tangy finish. The partial malolactic fermentation gives the wine a creamy texture. A blend of sauvignon blanc, traminer, semillon and petit marseng. Drink now." - (August 5th, 2015)

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Extremely light pink. Fresh, mineral-accented aromas of raspberry, white peach and musky flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and focused on the palate; lively red berry, pit fruit and honeysuckle flavors show a lithe, mineral-driven personality. On the distinctly graceful side, finishing with repeating florality and stony persistence." - Josh Raynolds (May 2016)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Attaché is matured in 40% new oak and comes across a little sweeter and plush on the nose compared to the Two Messengers: kirsch, blueberry and a touch of violet coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, again, very well-judged acidity and a sense of natural poise that cannot disguise the Burgundy influence from Louis-Michel Liger-Belair. Like the Two Messengers, this is not only impressive, but exceedingly good value." - Neal Martin (Mar 2015)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2012 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana is soft, radiant and open-knit, all of which give considerable appeal today. There is good brightness and intensity to the fruit, along with lovely aromatic top notes of cedar, smoke, licorice and tobacco. Given its mid-weight structure, the 2012 is likely to offer its best drinking sooner rather than later. There is no reason to delay gratification in this impeccable, beautifully crafted Vino Nobile from Capezzana." - Antonio Galloni (October 2016)
