Dec 2010 - Wine Enthusiast:

Skyhawk Lane 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles) (91 Points)

An interesting wine for its moderate alcohol, and extreme dryness. Leaner and more structured than a plump Napa Cab, it shows juicy blackberry, currant, mineral and oak flavors that are streamlined and elegant. A bite of alcohol makes this pretty wine balanced and clean through the finish.  — S.H.  Wine Enthusiast (12/1/2010) — 91


April 2007 - Wine Enthusiast:

2004 Syrah, San Luis Obispo County, "Alamo Creek Vineyards" ($44.00) 87 Points

I like the ripeness of the fruit, and the way the blackberry cola, coffee and spice flavors play against an edge of leathery, funky grilled beef. The tannins are powerful, so decant and drink it with rich, fatty meats and cheeses. - S.H. (4/1/2007)


Septmeber 2007 - Wine Enthusiast:

2004 "Three Cane Blend", San Luis Obispo County ($46.00) 87 Points

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cab Franc comprise the blend. The wine is dry and very forward in fruit, with black cherry, raspberry, and smoky, oaky vanilla flavors. It's delicious and a little one-dimensional, so drink now. - S.H. 9/1/2007


September 2006 - International Wine Review:

2004 Syrah, San Luis Obispo County, "Alamo Creek Vineyards" ($44.00) 91 Points

Purple garnet in color, this offering exhibits rich blueberry and blackberry scents followed by a lush richly textured palate of concentrated black fruit, pepper, rounded tannins and grip on the finish. A lovely wine. Winery: (805) 474-4277


Sept. 2006 - San Luis Obispo Tribune: Local Wine Picks

2003 Three Cane Blend ($42.00)

A lovely wine with ripe cherry, a note of anise, firm structure and a long finish.

2003 Red Fusion ($46.00)

That's roughly one-third Rutherford Cabernet, one-third Paso Syrah and one-third Paso Zinfandel. It offers lots of fruit wrapped up in a supple texture.
