...exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with aromas of tapenade, barbecue smoke, black currants, sweet cherries, baking spices and licorice. Medium-bodied and fleshy with delicious fruit, it showcases the endearing, upfront charm of this vintage where the wines are well-made...93. WA 10/13.
94+ Points, Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media: "The 2011 Cariad is dark, powerful and intense. Expressive ferrous notes lead to dark red fruit, smoke, licorice, tobacco and orange peel in an exotic, full-bodied wine. There is plenty of stuffing and mid-palate richness, but today the 2011 is raw in its intensity. Ideally the 2011 needs a few more years in bottle. Stylistically, the 2011 is a bit of a departure from past vintages. Because of the challenging weather, Colgin relied more on fruit from David Abreu's Thorevilos more than Madrona Ranch, which gives the wine a distinct sense of Howell Mountain intensity and minerality that is a bit out of character. This is also the first time the Cabernet Sauvignon percentage is under 50%. Readers will have to be patient with the 2011, but there is plenty to look forward to. The blend is 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc." 11/13
