Delicious, impeccable chard. Stellar producer. — 7 days ago
Wow! Even after 21 years, this wine was beautiful. Bright, clear color; wonderful nose; cherries, strawberries, and rhubarb; minerals. An exceptional Pinot. — 4 months ago
Earlier this week, a rep for Crown Point wines hosted a tasting to show off a few of their newer releases. New to me, they are out of Santa Barbara and have the duo of Adam Henkel (former assistant winemaker at Harlan for 8yrs) and Philippe Melka (who came on starting with the ‘15 vintage) making the wines.
The difference between this wine and the previous two is that this is their Cabernet (92%) with just a dash of merlot, petit Verdot, malbec and cab franc. Similar to the ‘15 Estate Selection in how this is big and dense but still harmonious. Rich and dark fruits with graphite, cassis, and mocha. Big tannins with a dark and compact core...blackberries, underripe blueberries, violets, and dusty cedar. — 2 years ago

First bottle from the deVilliers vineyard, and it was very enjoyable. Solid tannins, stone fruits, and minerals. Thumbs up for another Calera wine. — 6 months ago
