"This was so good, we had to go back and taste it 3 more times. With Napa superstar Thomas Brown behind this incredible Diamond Mountain estate, Wallis is quickly becoming a name to watch. What really caught our attention to this estate is how much all the critics seem to be in love with this fast rising winery. Robert Parker, Antonio Galloni, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast are all gushing over these gorgeous wines, and they all seem to be in agreement- this is a TRB estate with a very bright future! With the vines close to 20 years in age, they've had the chance to dig deep in the rocky soils, and are not only producing deep, dark fruit character, but great notes of coffee, cocoa, and black olives, and a solid back bone of great structure too. This was one of only a handful of wines we went back to taste several times....it was that good."
