Ratings & Reveiews


91 Points- Vinous Media:
"Blankiet's Prince of Hearts Paradise Hills Vineyard is absolutely impeccable. Bright, floral and juicy, the 2011 impresses for its sense of proportion and harmony. Sweet spices, rose petals and raspberries flow through to the finish. The 2011 isn't a huge wine, but it is without question one of the most delicious, pleasurable reds of the year, especially within its price range. The 2011 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and drops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot." - Antonio Galloni (November 2013)

88-90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2011 Prince of Hearts Paradise Hills Vineyard exhibits notes of charcoal, roasted herbs, sweet red and black currant fruit, and a medium-bodied, lighter than usual, but pleasant personality. It should be drunk over the next 5-7 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2013)

89 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"(blend based on 76% cabernet sauvignon): Good dark red. Vibrant aromas and flavors of cherry, redcurrant, rose petal, wild herbs and tobacco. On the lean side but pure and focused, displaying good mineral tension and a touch of spicy oak. More about aromas than texture." - Stephen Tanzer (May 2014)
