Worthy “Five Clones” Sauvignon Blanc

2012

Beverage Testing Institute (Sept 2015) - 90 points - Gold Medal – Emerald straw color. Bright, floral, attractive creamy aromas of papaya custard and pomelo gelato with a satiny, tangy, medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length marinated Meyer lemon, guava, and grassy earth finish with fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A dry, highly polished sauvignon blanc. (Worthy Five Clones 2012)

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

2008

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)

2013

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)

2012

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)

2011

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

2009

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)

2008

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)

2007

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)

2001

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)
