Kimberly Hatcher is the longtime assistant to Russell Bevan and has kept her eyes and ears wide open. She is on a roll as of late! Robert Parker and Jeb Dunnuck have noticed her and the press is out! That said, Kimberly’s wines are very small productions, and with high scores… they will sell out fast! She makes the wines at the Tench Caves, and I suspect Russell Bevan might be looking over her shoulder once in awhile (… or maybe not).

Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “Deeply colored, the 2017 Sugarloaf Mountain Red Wine checks in as 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in new French oak. It has a killer bouquet of black cherries, currants, ground herbs, Asian spice and chocolate. Deep, full-bodied, and opulent on the palate, it displays beautiful fruit, some meaty, iron notes, no hard edges, and a great finish.”
Tasting Notes: The heart of the Morgado SLM Red Wine is deep and reverent, with ripe fresh fruit at its core, wrapped with sweet tobacco and kissed with cacao. The aromas of summer nectarines and tree ripened Bing cherries reach for you with elegance as you swirl this wine in the glass. Your mouth will water with anticipation at the thought of your first taste, and as the wine touches your tongue, you are rewarded with rich silky textures and a core of fruit that is fresh and luxurious.
