THE NEW YORK TIMES
" ...the 2013 Villa Creek Garnacha from Paso Robles made our Top 10."
Eric Asimov, September 23, 2016, In California, Grenache Packs More Than Power
"This year’s releases from Cris Cherry represent the most complex and refined wines that I have yet tasted from Villa Creek. Cherry continues to buy grapes from some of the region’s most esteemed vineyards, including James Berry, Denner and Bassetti for his current wines, all of which are made with native yeasts and aged in combinations of French oak barrels of varying size and concrete and stainless steel tanks.”

THE WINE SPECTATOR
"The wine was terrific, bold and intense with plenty of black fruit flavors and a peppery sage note. It stood up to the bold flavors of the food; together, they were a perfect match of the hearty and comforting."
