2015 Ultimate Cabernet receives 91 points from The Wine Advocate

In Issue 233 on October 31, 2015 Ultimate Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded 91 points from The Wine Advocate. The review: A blend of 74.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.1% Cabernet Franc, 11.2% Merlot and 1.8% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Ultimate is scented of warm plums and crushed cherries with hints of vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, it's nicely balanced with bags of poise and firm, fine-grained tannins, finishing long and lively with some earthy nuances coming through.

2013 Ultimate Red is reviewed at Vinography

Dark garnet in color, this wine smells of black cherry and chocolate. In the mouth, rich black cherry, cola, and cocoa powder flavors are muffled under a fleecy blanket of tannins. For those who like big wines, this is a crowd pleaser. A bit massive for my tastes, but reasonably well balanced, nonetheless. Could use a little more acidity, but there's enough to keep everything moving across the palate.

RockinRed reviews the 2012 Audax and 2013 Ultimate Red

Calla Lily is a new project of Napa Valley icon and true wine Renaissance man, Cary Gott. If you are a northern California wine fan you have likely encountered Cary’s Midas touch throughout Napa, Sonoma, and the Central Coast. With so many great wine accomplishments, I must confess my favorite is Gott’s Roadside, nothing beats a juicy burger after a day of wine tasting in Napa Valley. Calla Lilly is Cary’s latest joint project with Hong Kong based entrepreneurs Anthony Fung and Andy Chui. The 2013 Calla Lily Ultimate Red is crafted of 81.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10.8% Merlot, and 7.6% Cabernet Franc. This Bordeaux style blend is a deep blackish-purple with layers of complex notes including dark berries, leather, baking spice, dusty earth, cocoa powder, dried lavender and fennel; it is lush on the palate, rich and powerful, yet well integrated with supple tannins and a long finish. The 2012 Calla Lily Audax is crated of 89.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.5% Petit Verdot, 4.1% Merlot, and 0.1% Malbec. Audax, meaning “bold” in Latin, aptly describes this wine. This wine is deep and seductive, pronounced earthiness of black pepper, medicinal, asphalt, leather, and cocoa powder stand front and center, while cherries, plums, blackberries play [...]

2012 Audax is reviewed at Vinography

Vinography reviews the 2012 Audax: Dark garnet in the glass, this wine smells of raisins, chocolate and oak. In the mouth, the fruit is fresher than the nose would suggest, with cherry and cola and tobacco flavors tinged with oak and surrounded by a suede blanket of tannins. Decent acidity makes for that fresher quality, and the oak is more restrained than it first appears.
