Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Proprietary Red Estate was aged 20 months in 68% new French oak. It offers sweet black cherry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with aromas of unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice, Christmas fruitcake and earth. This elegant, medium to full-bodied, rich wine should drink well for 12-15+ years.

Gemstone Vineyard is a jewel-like slope nestled between rolling knolls on the eastern edge of Napa Valley. Incorporating a diverse grid of rare heritage clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, Gemstone consistently produces a critically acclaimed estate blend that exhibits power and elegance. Gemstone Vineyard's intensely-flavored tiny berries produce wines described as having "heroic depth and opulent richness."

Napa Valley

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
