More information on wine critics and ratings

The wine possesses extraordinary aromatics and alluring fragrances. Notes of kitchen herbs, cassis, and light forest qualities are quickly perceived. The soft, middle palate is supported by sophisticated, complex fruit. Tobacco also comes to mind as a compliment to the underlying red and black fruit.

The wine is fresh and lively with balanced tannins and restraint on the finish.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2014)
Tasted out of barrel, the sexy, layered and fruit-loaded 2014 Two Blondes Vineyard gives up tons of ripe black raspberry and plum fruits, licorice and scorched earth in its full-bodied, concentrated personality. This beauty will be ready to go on release.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2014)
Beautiful violet-like florals with wet stones, red plums and cocoa powder. Boysenberry, too. The palate has a succulent, smooth and even-handed feel, offering up deep plum flavors in an effortless, flowing mode. A class act. 56% merlot, 20% cabernet franc, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 9% malbec. Drink or hold.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2013)
Bright medium red. Knockout nose combines redcurrant, milk chocolate, thyme and musky smoky oak. Wonderfully sweet and plush, offering terrific plummy depth and smoky complexity in a style that reminded me of a Saint-Emilion. More red fruits than black, and very sophisticated in texture. Finishes with suave tannins and excellent length. I may be underestimating the potential longevity of this lovely blend because it's so sexy today. (11/2015)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2013)
This wine is a blend of Merlot (44%), Cabernet Sauvignon (34%) and Cabernet Franc. Fragrant aromas of raspberries, orange peel, red currant and garden herbs lead to restrained but sumptuous fruit flavors backed by a lick of tart acidity. It brings a sense of presence and depth.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2013)
Plush and generous, with lightly prickly tannins dancing around a supple core of ripe cherry, blueberry and spice. Finishes with a nice cut of acidity. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2023. 1,017 cases made.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 90 Points (2012)
Scents of consommé and cassis lead in this blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Two Blondes is always a blue-fruited beast and in 2012 it doesn’t disappoint, the finish recalling Malbec in its piney, purplish hue. (12/2015)
