I was honored to taste a full vertical, from the 2009 to 2012. And I have to say, you can really feel the soul of this property, the wildness, the beauty and above all the incredible flavors. The wines show great complexity, the palate is all about black fruits, which then developed into various spices with cedar notes and dense, balsamic flavors. What striked me the most was the overall freshness and, most of all, the outstanding balance due to the acidity. The 2012 vintage is rich, mouth filling and elegant – all at the same time. This wine lasts for minutes on the palate displaying ultra-fine tannins. I could not be more impressed by Promontory (even thought my expectations were very high), job well done to the great Harlan family!

The 2012 Promontory, which is the softest vintage to date, was slightly better this year than last year, as it had rounded out. It does not have the depth of the 2013, but it is a great wine on its own merits. Notes of new saddle leather, loamy soil, and crushed rock intermingle with blackcurrants, plum, tobacco leaf and spice in a full-bodied, wonderfully pure and large-scaled style with ripe, well-integrated tannin. It is accessible enough to enjoy, and in spite of its massiveness, it is certainly capable of evolving beautifully for 30 or more years.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Wonderful texture and richness with soft tannins and a round mouthfeel. Full body plus tobacco, chocolate and spice. Black currants and blackberry too. It's aged five years, about three years in bottle. About 95% cabernet sauvignon, the rest malbec and petit verdot.

California

California is the United States’ largest wine producing state, comprising 90% of the country’s wine production. Over 3000 wineries call it home, ranging from small, boutique producers to large companies such as EJ Gallo and Kendall Jackson. Many are dispersed over California’s 107 AVAs or American Viticulture Areas. These high quality regions are located all along the state and include the world famous Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Russian River Valley, Knight’s Valley, Carneros, Santa Cruz, The Central Coast, Ojai and Santa Barbara. Viticulture dates back to the 18th century when Franciscan monks first planted vineyards in their missions along the California coast and Baja California (current day Mexico). Some of California’s most celebrated producers include Sine Qua Non from Santa Barbara and the Central Coast, Screaming Eagle from the Napa Valley and Marcassin from Sonoma. ...
