The 2014 Red Wine Blend Night Owl comes from the àMaurice Estate Vineyard and is a blend of 43% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot. Its deep purple/ruby-tinged color is followed by a terrific bouquet of cassis, ripe black cherries, licorice and wild herbs. Medium to full-bodied, supple and polished on the palate, with good acidity, it's another fabulous wine. 92 points Wine Advocate.

The 2014 Fred is a brighter and more high toned than its predecessors. It is obvious from the moment it leaves the bottle with its bright red complexion. It still showcases the usual lavender oil and bright nose of the Tablas Creek clone, but it is expressing more red fruit notes. Bouncy and bright in the mouth while round and plush tannins maintain through to the end. Will drink well though 2020. 90 Points Wine Advocate.

William Kelly of the Wine Advocate wrote, “The 2015 Artist Series Morris Blend reproduces on its label an oil painting by the American Abstract Impressionist painter Carl Morris. The wine offers up attractive aromas of crushed cassis, pencil shavings and toasted gingerbread, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety palate with a deep core of savory fruit and youthfully chewy structuring tannins. The finish is long and nicely delineated. This was my favorite of these offerings from àMaurice Cellars, and I'd expect it to reach its peak in the next decade.” 93+ points Wine Advocate.
38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc
Aromas of wet stone graphite, apple blossom open up to flavors of bright Asian pear, and bergamot citrus notes remain high in the palate and end with a slight note of hazelnut. Aged in neutral oak barrels maintaining the brightness of the wine.
