Check out what the critics say

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, July 2017
2012 Brooklyn West Barbera – “Cherry and raspberry aromas are accented by a spicy, earthy quality in this easy-drinking, well-balanced wine, and the flavors gush with fruit. It’s smooth and polished on the palate, medium in body and light in tannin.”

 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, November 2016
2011 Brooklyn West Zinfandel Grand Reserve – “Sweet-seeming oak aromas and spicy-sweet oak flavors bring excitement to this full-bodied wine. It smells like cedar and cinnamon, and tastes like blackberry jam on toast. A moderately tannic texture supports all that richness.”

 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, June 2016
2012 Brooklyn West Dry Riesling- “Sharp lime skins, rich petrol and yellow grapefruit juice combine for that familiarly fresh Riesling aroma, yet this one is a tad richer, with a lemon pastry note. Dried lemons and apples show on the palate, where a zesty, tangy yuzu acidity meets with ginger and lemongrass notes. A complex bottling.”

 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, March 2016
2012 Brooklyn West Zinandel- “With a dry and full-bodied approach, this wine combines good fruit flavors, intriguing oak spiciness and appetizing acidity. The crisp character and high alcohol combine with fine-grained tannins for a liveliness that keeps the cherry and raspberry flavors dancing through the finish.”

 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, November 2015
2012 Brooklyn West Rockridge Red- “This wine has attractive and ripe plum and strawberry aromas, then a soft, plush texture and light, fruity flavors. Made with Barbera, Grenache and Petite Sirah, it tastes sweet and easy to swallow but has plenty of body and alcohol to go with it.”

 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, July 2015
2011 Brooklyn West Olive Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve- “Spicy clove and dried wafts of thyme permeate the opening of this wine, followed by strong currents of caramel toffee. On the palate, it is juicy in cherry and blackberry, while maintaining a medium-sized approach to its body and length.”

 

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, June 2015
2009 Brooklyn West Cabernet Franc- “A microscopic amount of this wine was made, and it has spent time in bottle, currently revealing a floral, violet bouquet that ventures into almond and orgeat aromas. Vibrant and fresh on the palate, with a bite on the finish, it offers a strong grenadine-like taste.”
