#89 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
The wine shows serious structure with beautiful, deep and intense fruit and spiciness.
"Sleek and firm, this red delivers a firm core of cherry and berry flavors, with accents of smoke, cocoa, mineral and herb. More dense than broad, with lively underlying acidity. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made."
"The 2007 Gago spent 14 months in a combination of large oak and barriques. It fills the mouth with savory black fruits, exotic spices, and mineral notes. Layered, plush, and nicely balanced, it can be approached now but will continue to blossom for several more years. "
The Wine Advocate
"Opaque ruby. Pungent, mineral-accented aromas of cherry-vanilla, blackcurrant, sassafras and baking spices. Dense, pliant and sweet, with ripe cherry and spice flavors lifted by harmonious acidity. Smoothly combines richness and vivacity and finishes with silky tannins and lingering dark berry flavors. "
