Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts Wine Spectator 5/31/17
This offers a beautifully rendered core of pure, delineated raspberry, cherry and red currant fruit that races from start to finish, carried by a light graphite edge and backed by a long, iron- and mesquite-accented finish. Very focused, with mouthwatering drive. Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault. Drink now through 2027. 750 cases made.
95 pts Vinous/Stephen Tanzer May 2017
Medium ruby-red. Deep aromas of blackberry, olive tapenade, botanical herbs, lavender, spices, licorice and savory minerality. Plush but firm on the palate, displaying terrific energy and shape to the flavors of dark berries, black pepper, wild herbs and spices. With its wonderfully even, fine-grained tannins and outstanding saline persistence, this savory wine is already compulsively drinkable. Really stains the palate with purple fruits, spices and red flowers. I find this much easier to understand than the 2013 was two years ago but its distinct firmness suggests that it will evolve slowly. Really stands out for its energy and lift--and for its almost Pinot-like weight



Winemaker Notes

2014 could be overlooked because it came between the explosive 2013 and the very pretty 2015. It developed slowly, but grew in stature & definition and will continue to do so. A tightly knit vintage, as was the case with the 2011, which may have been the best Columella. We can only hope that this will be the next contender. Time will tell.
