Vinous 90 points - Saturated ruby. Ripe blueberry and cherry compote on the nose, complicated by hints of woodsmoke, vanilla and black pepper. Supple and gently sweet, displaying very good depth to the sappy black and blue fruit and spicecake flavors. The vanilla quality builds slowly with air and carries through the long, smooth, spice-tinged finish, which leaves a sweet blue fruit note behind..Josh Raynolds, September/2016
All of our wines are given a specific name, significant to the Hearst legacy. The story behind each one is as important as the wine itself and helps influence its namesake. In Tribute to the Hearst Legacy, we are thrilled to present ”Randolph”, our proprietary red wine, named in honor of William Randolph Hearst, Steve Hearst’s great-grandfather and famed visionary of the Hearst Castle.
