2014 Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon

  1. 96 Points from Wine Enthusiast

    A deep, velvety purple color in the glass, this bottling by proprietor Roger Bower and winemaker Adam Henkel shows dark-chocolate-covered black cherries, fresh blackberry, white pepper, violet oil, port reduction sauce and spice sake on the lavish nose. Firm tannins frame the palate, which carries black currant and roasted lean beef flavors through soy and pepper sauce into a finish of caramel and espresso grinds. - Reviewed by Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast 

  2. 94 Points from Antonio Galloni

    The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous.  Ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, mocha and espresso infused this supple, flamboyant Cabernet.  Silky and purple, with no hard edges at all, the 2014 hits all the right notes.  Even with all of its natural intensity, it displays a good bit of aromatic freshness and nuance as well. - Reviewed by Antonio Galloni

  3. 93 Points from Wine Advocate

    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon offers notes of crushed blackberries, cassis and wild blueberries with hints of espresso, bay leaves, black soil and pencil shavings. The palate is a stark contrast from the previous vintage, showing off a very big, rich, full-bodied character, with velvety tannins and plenty of freshness. This is a blockbuster of a Cabernet Sauvignon with the volume turned way up! - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

    “The 2014 Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon undeniably blew me away. It is precisely what we should expect from Roger’s estate vineyard in Happy Canyon. This is an impeccable encapsulation of what he wants this wine to be: great minerality, a marvelous amount of richness and elegance. This wine should drink well and age gracefully for 25+ years.” 

2014 Crown Point Estate Selection

  1. 96 Points from Wine Enthusiast

    Extremely dense in the glass, this epic bottling offers lavish and penetrating aromas of black currant and elderberry jam on the nose alongside seared beef, chocolate cake and a pinch of violet. Expertly balanced, polished tannins make for a soft mouthfeel yet firm structure, carrying flavors of black fruit, chocolate and grilled figs that lead to an espresso note on the finish. - Reviewed by Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast 

  2. 94 Points from Wine Advocate

    A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec and 11% Merlot, the 2014 Proprietary Estate Blend displays a deep garnet-purple color and nose of blueberry pie, crème de cassis, baked berries and spice box, plus touches of mocha, violets, black soil and charcoal. The very full-bodied palate reveals a behemoth of a Bordeaux blend, offering concentrated blue and black fruit notes and a very spicy undercurrent, framed by velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with great persistence. - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate 

  3. Philippe Melka

    “The 2014 vintage captures the character of this property and reinforces Roger Bower’s commitment to making unique and profound wines in Santa Barbara County. The 2014 is a perfect encapsulation of what we want these wines to be: uncompromised, indulgent, age worthy, and impeccably balanced.” 

2013 Crown Point Cabernet Sauvignon

  1. 96 Points from Wine Enthusiast

    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 

  2. 95 Points from Wine Advocate

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals slowly evolving crème de cassis, preserved plums and cigar box notes with a lovely earth and underbrush undercurrent plus notions of bay leaves and lavender. The medium-bodied palate offers lovely poise and is elegant yet intense, with plenty of youthful, muscular fruit supported by grainy tannins and finishing with a spring in its step. Give it another year or two in bottle and drink it over the next 15-20+. - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

2013 Crown Point Relevant Red

  1. 95 Points from Wine Enthusiast

    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. 94 Points from Wine Advocate

    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Relevant offers up a lovely rose petal, red and black currant perfume with suggestions of preserved plums, cedar, baking spices and chocolate box. The medium-bodied palate proffers well-judged, ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless acid to support the fragrant fruit, finishing with the oak still poking through just a bit. Still very youthful, leave it for a couple of years and drink it over the next 15-20+. - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
