  1. 2013 Crown Point Relevant Red - 95 Points

    This is the first ultra-luxury release from this label by entrepreneur Roger Bower and winemaker Adam Henkel, and the blend of 30% Syrah, 30% Malbec, 30% Petit Verdot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunner. Dark as night and extremely viscous in the glass, this shows deep blueberry, uncrushed peppercorns and touches of smoked meat on the nose. Thick and lush flavors of blueberry smoked coffee bean and roasted meat jump onto the palate with glee. This attention-grabber will last for years, but it is very accessible out of the gates. – Reviewed by Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast

  2. 2013 Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon - 96 Points

    Entrepreneur Roger Bower hired Harlan Estate alum Adam Henkel to deliver top-tier wines, and this first release is an extremely auspicious beginning. Black as night in the glass, the wine delivers elegant aromas of olallieberry jam, baking spice, shaved chocolate, beef jerky, teriyaki and purple flowers. The sticky structure will age phenomenally, further concentrating flavors of coffee foam, soy-laced berry sauce, Asian pepper spice, and dense blueberry, black cassis and black plum fruit. Drink 2018-2033. – Reviewed by Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast
