"The 2009 vintage was a great one for this bottling, ... It feels nice and crisp and dry, with polished, complex citrus fruit, white flower, peach and mineral flavors."

"The coolness of the region and vintage shows in this Chard's acidic crispness and minerality. It comes down on the Chablis-style end of the spectrum, with hints of tropical fruits, apples and pairs, as well as a welcome touch of sweet oak. Easily Silverado's best Chardonnay in years." 90 Points

"An absolutely gorgeous Cabernet. It flatters all the way through, from the flamboyantly ripe cassis, cherry, cocoa and anise flavors to the smooth tannins and long, spicy finish. So refined and rich, yet so elegant. Should age for at least the next 6-8 years. 94 Points"
