93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  A blend of 76% Zinfandel, 13% Charbono, 6% Grenache and 5% Petite Sirah, the 2016 Disciples is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with gorgeous notions of hoisin, Black Forest cake, prunes and potpourri with hints of black pepper, unsmoked cigars and cloves. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and oh-so-spicy, it fills the palate with decadent fruit and a plush texture, finishing with a lively lift. (LPB)   (6/2018)

  The 2016 Disciples, a blend of 76% old vine Zinfandel, 13% Charbono, 6% Grenache and 5% Petite Sirah is a wine of real personality and class. Floral, silky and nuanced, with compelling purity of fruit and terrific balance, the Disciples is a winner. Striking fruit density and alluring aromatic presence add character to this mid-weight, super-classic wine. (AG)   (3/2018)

Balanced and inviting, the wine opens with a concentrated nose of ripe strawberries, red plum, allspice, vanilla and a touch of black licorice and cigar box. A smooth and enveloping entry of dark red fruits and creme Anglaise leads to a fresh and bright mid-palate. The soft and integrated tannins finish at length with a pleasing texture of bakers chocolate.

Roasted lamb, a succulent Rib-Eye steak with blue cheese butter.
