Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 98 Points The 2015 Promontory has recently been released in the domestic market and is due for international release in spring 2021. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has sprung to life since I last tasted it, prancing out of the glass with showy red currant jelly, black cherry compote, and warm cassis notes, plus hints of cinnamon toast, wilted roses, unsmoked cigars, and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate is rich and impactful, featuring layer upon layer of red and black fruits with loads of mineral sparks. The structure is rock-solid with firm, rugged tannins that are beginning to come into line with the flamboyant fruit, finishing with great length and a lively lift.
Jeb Dunnuck 98 Points I was lucky enough to be able to taste a small vertical for this report. Starting with the 2015 Estate, this is still youthful and unevolved, but wow, it’s nevertheless a brilliant wine. Gorgeous notes of currants, mulberries, and black cherry fruits, as well as lots of tapenade and leafy herb notes, define the bouquet, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, sweet, polished tannins, and a great finish. It can be enjoyed today but won’t hit prime time for another 3-4 years. It should evolve for decades.
Decanter 96 Points You feel the width and depth of great Napa arriving with this wine, and there is a purity of expression that is hard not to be seduced by. Clear power and punch, with a sleek character of damson, graphite, olive tapenade, and pencil lead, along with crème de cassis that reflects the trace of heat on the finish. A kick of black pepper and nutmeg spice brings focus. As it opens, the freshly cut herbs of a Napa mountain wine become clear, and it is heady and confident. Still young at six years old, it will benefit from a few more years in the bottle. The first vintage was in 2009, distributed partly through the Place de Bordeaux since the 2012 vintage. Drinking Window 2022 - 2038
Wine Spectator 95 Points A lush and seductive style, well-endowed with creamy-textured cassis, plum, and blackberry confiture flavors that glide atop mocha, black licorice, and Black Forest cake notes. There's a twinge of loam and flashes of bay leaf and sweet tobacco on the finish to keep this honest but it steers primarily in the direction of flashy fruit. Drink now through 2035.
