99pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The best wine so far (although I suspect the 2015 may ultimately enter the picture as well) is the nearly perfect 2013 Promontory Estate.  It is simply richer and fuller, with greater integration of tannin, and tastes spectacular.  With an opaque, dense purple color and notes of graphite, wet rocks, blackberry and blueberry fruit, some charcoal, and again, loads of spice and loamy soil nuances, the wine has great intensity, a full-bodied texture, and finely grained, sweet tannin.  This is a stunner and again, accessible, but its best days are probably a good decade away, as this could very well turn out to be a 40- to 50-year wine."  Oct 2016

Winery:  "A rich garnet color and youthful brilliance define the appearance in glass.  As is typical with the youthful wines of Promontory, the nose is subtle yet intricate.  Several minutes after pouring, the different facets begin to emerge.  Though one might discern distinct aromas of wet stone, cassis, and hints of resin, the nose seems to more appropriately transport one to the place itself.  There is a feeling of moist fog, bringing both humidity and the scents of the native landscape, while projecting in the mind’s eye a vision of sunlight without heat.  On the palate, this vintage is decidedly forward.  The acidity is forthcoming on entry and balanced by the sheer muscle and density of fruit.  The tannins have a chiseled definition, but remain soft and pliant, delivering a long and persistent finish."
