Critical Acclaim

RP97+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 8th Sep 2021

"The 2018 Soul Of A Lion is an incredible Cabernet Sauvignon, made exclusively from free-run juice, blended with 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot and aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. Opaque ruby-purple in color, the nose opens slowly, segueing from graphite and tobacco leaves, to violets and blue fruit preserves, to cinnamon, potpourri and dark spices. The palate is seamless and cashmere-like, with expansive, pure, mineral-laced fruits enlivened by a burst of freshness that highlights the perfectly ripe fruit character this vintage. The finish is very long, offering violet perfume and iron tones that linger in the mouth. This is a gorgeous wine that combines unique personality with expert craftsmanship. It drinks well now but has all it needs for a long life in the cellar." (97+ pts.)

JD95+ Jeb Dunnuck 9/30/2021

"Based largely on Cabernet Sauvignon blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2018 Soul Of A Lion offers a brilliant array of cassis, tobacco leaf, graphite, lead pencil, and earth. With full-bodied richness on the palate, it offers ripe tannins, a round, layered, yet still focused texture, and a great finish. Tight, compact, and focused, it’s going to benefit from 3–4 years of bottle age and drink brilliantly over the following 15–20 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)" (95+ pts.)

VN95 Vinous Jul 2022

"Dark purple. Intensely perfumed dark berry liqueur, exotic spice, incense, floral and licorice aromas show outstanding clarity and pick up hints of espresso and vanilla with air. Deeply concentrated, mineral-tinged cassis, blueberry, violet pastille and bitter chocolate flavors become livelier and take on a smoky nuance as the wine stretches out. Broad and youthfully chewy in texture, showing firm tension, impressive floral-dominated persistence and dusty tannins that lend solid closing grip. All new French oak." (95 pts.)

JS95 JamesSuckling.com Tuesday, October 5, 2021

"Aromas of blackberries and lavender follow through to a full body with tight, firm tannins that are long and linear. Lots of pretty fruit as well. Some pine-needle and forest-floor undertones. A cooler and more refined Daou. Drinkable now, but better in 2023." (95 pts.)

WE96 Wine Enthusiast 10/1/2021

"A creamy black-cherry aroma is balanced by toasted herbs and roasted coffee bean on the nose of this impressive bottling. There’s a firm structure to the dense palate, and the flavors are expertly cohesive, combining herbs and savory meat with blueberry and blackberry." (96 pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
