2020 Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon

Meredith May, Tasting Panel, August 2022

“Spiced cedar, Luxardo cherry and a warming of cinnamon create an appealing mouthfeel and flavor profile. A touch of tilled earth, sweet tobacco and mulling spices fit well into this balanced red. ”

2019 Luke Columbia Valley "The Companion" Red Blend

Washington Post, June 2022

“...the wines are delicious. Luke specializes in deep, savory reds from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The Companion red blend combines all three, with Cabernet taking the leading role. Expect dark fruit flavors such as blackberry and plum, sprinkled with coffee dust. The Syrah gives the wine a rugged sensibility with grippy tannins carrying the finish...”

2019 Ricasoli Colledilà Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, June 2022

“Distinctly savory, this red delivers grassy, thyme and menthol aromas and flavors allied to cherry, strawberry and loam. Angular and dense, with the fruit component emerging with air. Deftly balanced and complex, this is long and reveals an aftertaste of cherry, berry, mineral and herbal accents. Best from 2025 through 2043. From Italy.”

2019 Ricasoli Roncicone Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG

James Suckling, James Suckling, June 2022

“The aromas and structure to this single vineyard Chianti Classico are something else this year. The orange-peel, meat and cherry aromas are lifted and spirited. It’s medium-bodied with firm, chewy tannins that are dusty and fine-grained. Structured and sturdy with a granite-like presence. Try after 2025, but impressive to taste.”

2017 Donnafugata Lighea

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, December 2018

“You absolutely cannot go wrong with a refreshing value white such as this. The 2017 Sicilia Lighea is a pure expression of the Zibibbo grape otherwise known as Muscat of Alexandria. Perfect for appetizers or finger foods, this dry white wine shows fragrant aromas of honey, star jasmine and summer peach. The finish is lean and crisp.”

2016 Donnafugata Ben Ryé

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, October 2019

“Rather than pair this wine with a Sicilian dessert, serve it as the Sicilian dessert. The 2016 Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé is a radiant and beautifully fragrant edition with white raisins, honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, caramel, preserved lemon, dried sage, apricot and sea salt. I could go on. The wine is light on its feet thanks to that crisp acidity, yet it has the volume and richness to coat your palate in all its luscious glory. The whole package is explosive. This dessert wine is usually sold in a 750-milliliter bottle (with some 80,000 bottles made), but you can also find it in a smaller 375-milliliter bottle.”

2018 Donnafugata Lighea

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, October 2019

“The 2018 Sicilia Lighea is a pure expression of Sicily's beloved Zibibbo grape that is otherwise known as Muscat of Alexandria. This is a dry wine; however, there is just enough of that bright floral intensity to remind you of the fragrant nature of this grape that is often used to make dessert wines such as Passito di Pantelleria. The bouquet delivers jasmine and sweet honeysuckle with some soapy perfume notes at the back. This unoaked wine is crisp, lean and simple in terms of mouthfeel. Some 180,000 bottles were made.”
