Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Philip is a wine with an American spirit. The front label depicts family ancestor Philip Mazzei (1730-1816) but his white wig and demeanor is very reminiscent of the United States founding fathers. The wine is based on Cabernet Sauvignon (with some Cabernet Franc). It offers surprisingly soft and luscious tannins with a bouquet that is enhanced with dark berry and sweet spice. It makes a great choice for near-term enjoyment.

Wine SpectatorA sinewy, tough style whose gritty tannins define the black cherry and blackberry flavors, this tips to the dry side of the balance, with a leafy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2017 through 2024. 2,000 cases made.
