Recent Top Scoring Wines from the Crimson Wine Group Portfolio

Here are some of our most recent scores from our portfolio that we are proud to share:

Pine Ridge Vineyards 2016 FORTIS Cabernet Sauvignon, 93 points | “A big red that’s dry, savory and well structured, rather than opulent and brimming with fruit, as so many Napa cabernets are. Impressively complex, dry finish.” James Suckling

Seghesio Family Vineyards 2016 Cortina Zinfandel, 93 points | “This 100% varietal wine is juicy in flavors of blackberry and cherry, with an expansive nature to the well-integrated midpalate. It offers a bold depth of fruit and spice flavors that sit well in the full-bodied frame.” Wine Enthusiast

Archery Summit 2016 Arcus Vineyard Pinot Noir, 93 points, Editor’s Choice | “Full throttle fruit, wide open with big flavors of black cherry, this red easily carries the barrel highlights (41% new French oak) and herbal components from 40% whole-cluster fermentation. Streaks of coffee, dark chocolate and wet bark roll through polished tannins. This seems bound to improve over the next decade and longer.” Wine Enthusiast

Chamisal Vineyards 2016 Califa Chardonnay, 93 points | “Soft and mellow yet very classic and inviting on the nose, this bottling offers aromas of poached white peach, buttered brioche, honeysuckle and oak on the nose. That oak looms over the sip but in a balanced manner, giving savory, smoky roundness to the butterscotch, clove and fresh lemon flavors.” Wine Enthusiast

Double Canyon 2016 Double Canyon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, 94 points | “Cassis, tobacco, and cedarwood are just some of the nuances here, and the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Canyon Vineyard is straight-up classy, with a perfectly balanced, medium to full-bodied, seamless texture. Possessing good mid-palate density, ripe tannins, and a great finish, it's the most expensive in the lineup, yet certainly worth it.” Jeb Dunnuck

Seven Hills Winery 2016 Seven Hills Vineyard Merlot, 94 points | “Also deep purple-colored, the 2016 Merlot Seven Hills Vineyard (100% Merlot brought up in 45-50% new French oak) offers another level of intensity in its cassis, black cherry, toasty oak, tobacco leaf, and underbrush aromas and flavors. Deep, rich, beautifully textured, and downright sexy, it's a beautiful, sweetly fruit Merlot that does everything right.” Jeb Dunnuck 

Malene 2017 Camp 4 Vineyard Rosé of Mourvèdre, 95 points | “We have been tasting many styles within this trending category, but what makes this a standout is not only its flavor profile, but its texture and what I refer to as “alertness.” The tones are wide awake: fresh, clean, savory, and focused…This Bandol-style wine is ageworthy with a nose of mountain brush and raspberry. White plum and apricot brighten the palate and grassy, heather notes broaden it. Rose petals, paprika, and nutmeg stylize it even further.” Tasting Panel
