Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Dec 2011) 91 “The 2009 Little Sister is a beautiful, perfumed wine laced with silky red berries, flowers and spices. It is a gracious, supple wine endowed with remarkable textural finesse and exceptional overall balance.”
SILVER Medal at the San Francisco 2012 Chronicle Wine Competition.
St. Helena Star Wine of the Week "This is one of those wines that tastes more expensive than it is, even at its $45 price tag. It has juicy red fruits with balanced spice and oak flavors, and the acidity adds a nice lift. The wine is made in a rich, full-bodied style and would be great to pull out a dinner party, especially if you are serving roast beef, steaks or a rich stew."
Wine and Spirits June 2012 Issue Best Buy 94 "This Wine's fruit purity comes into focus over the course of a day, its bold, dark berry flavors and mineral-infected tannins integrating toward plump richness with air."
