Beverage Testing Institute (Sept 2015) - 90 points - Gold Medal – Emerald straw color.

The Fifty Best (Oct 2014) – Gold Medal (Worthy Five Clones 2010)


Wine Advocate (Dec 2009) - 90 points - “The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Five Clones is a sort of hybrid blend of New Zealand combined with a Loire Valley style of Sauvignon. Crisp, fresh lemon grass notes intermixed with melon, fig, and spice builds incrementally in the mouth. It is fresh and medium-bodied, with loads of fruit.” Robert Parker (Worthy Five Clones 2008)

Worthy “Sophia’s Cuvée”

Washington Post - "No the price is not a misprint!  Had I been served this wine blind, I'd have pegged it at no less than $60.  Frankly, I doubt there is a Cabernet in the price range that can touch it right now."  Ben Giliberti (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée)


Beverage Testing Institute/ (Dec 2021) - 94 points – "Garnet black color. Aromas of red cassis, grilled fennel, toasted cinnamon, caramel, and espresso with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, distinctive, long chocolate mouse, roasted nuts, roasted carrots, and hints of olives finish with heavy oak flavor. A nuanced, instantly satisfying Cabernet Sauvignon for long dinners and excellent pairings." (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2019)

James Suckling (April 2022) - 92 points – "Aromas of ripe redcurrants, cranberries, tarragon and roses. Medium-to full-bodied with slightly tight tannins. Juicy and vibrant on the palate, with a pleasant core of red fruit and berries." (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2019)

Wine Advocate (May 2022) - 90 points -  "Worthy's 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Sophia's Cuvee delivers attractive notes of cedar, mocha, black cherries and cassis. Full-bodied, rich and velvety." (Worthy Sophia’s 2019)


Sommeliers Choice Awards (2021) - 91 points - Gold – (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2017)

Vinous (Sep 2019) - 90 points – "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Worthy Sophia's Cuvee is a very pretty wine for drinking now, as it is already showing the first signs of aromaic complexity and softening. Sweet tobacco, cedar, mint, dried flowers and plum are front and center in this forward, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon." Antonio Galloni (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2017)


James Suckling (Oct 2016) - 91 points - "Brambly, ripe cassis and red-plum aromas lead to a palate with a bright, upbeat style and plenty of juicy red fruit at the finish." (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2016)


James Suckling (Dec 2017) - 92 points – "A tight and linear red with blueberry, blackberry, and currant character. Ultra-fine tannins that are polished and attractive." (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2014)


Beverage Testing Institute (July 2015) - 93 points - Gold Medal - Garnet black color. Bright, attractive aromas of melted chocolate, roasted nuts, and berry pie with a satiny, vibrant, medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long vanilla cream, spice, and oak finish with well-integrated tannins and light oak. A supple and inviting red blend. (Worthy Sophia’s Cuvee 2013)

James Suckling (Dec 2016) - 91 points – A big and juicy red showing berry and chocolate character.  Full and juicy with lots of fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Yet this does maintain freshness.  Drink now. (Worthy Sophia’s Cuvee 2013)


James Suckling (Dec 2016) - 90 points – Soft and silky with pretty tannin tension and light chewiness.  Medium body and chocolate, walnut and blackcurrant character. Drink now. (Worthy Sophia’s 2012)

Sommelier Challenge- International Wine & Spirits Competition-Robert Whitley (Sept 2016) – Silver (Worthy Sophia’s 2011)


Beverage Testing Institute (Oct 2014) - 93 points, Gold Medal, Stellar Cellar Selection- “Medium garnet violet color. Attractive aromas and flavors of ripe black currants, cedar, light green olive note, and black cherry with a chewy, bright, dry full body and a mildly astringent, intricate, medium-long finish with moderate oak. A very nice cabernet.” (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2009)


Wine Enthusiast (March 2013) - 91 points - Editor's Choice - "This has Cabernet Sauvignon-driven flavors of ripe summer blackberries, black currants, cassis liqueur and smoky oak.  It's dry with smooth tannins, and it shows a lot of class." (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2008)


Wine Advocate (Dec 2009) - 90 points -  "The 2007 Sophia's Cuvée is a big-time sleeper of the vintage.  An outstanding example of Napa Bordeaux varietals, it displays loads of white chocolate, crème de cassis, licorice, and a touch of subtle smoke in a medium to full-bodied style.  Silky tannins, flesh, and plenty of concentration characterize this wine, which has no hard edges." Robert Parker (Worthy Sophia’s 2007)


Wine Spectator - 93 points, Top 100: 2004, Rank: 42 - Appealing for its exuberant display of ripe, fleshy blackberry and wild berry fruit.  It adds a pretty touch of floral and cedar nuances before revealing its depth, richness and concentration on a long, persistent, impressive finish that keeps the flavors lively and flowing. (Worthy Sophia's Cuvée 2001)
