Robert Parker 93 Point!

Cenyth (pronounced Sen-eth) is the ancient form of the word Zenith. Deftly blending Bordeaux-style technique with Sonoma County terroir, Cenyth is the expression of a winemaker who was trained in the vineyards of Saint-Émilion and inspired by Cabernet Franc. To her, winemaking is an art. And here, balanced between the sunshine and drifting fog, she has found her ideal canvas.
Tasting Notes:
The 2013 Cenyth offers a tantalizing mix of fruit, flowers and herbs. Opening with a deep ruby core leading to a purple pink outer rim, there are supple notes of raspberry, red bing cherries, elderberry and blackcurrants.
A sophisticated and delicate floral bouquet elevates the ripe, youthful fruit aromas with lilac, violet and lavender.
Cenyth's signature bright red fruit notes are here balanced by hints of herb – sage, anise, fern, orange peel – and underlying tones of leather, black pepper, tobacco and cocoa powder.
Beneath it all is the vineyard's terroir, of limestone, clay and gravel, a compelling inerality. Couched in velvety tannins, with a dry, lasting finish, this wine stays true to the mountain vineyards of its birthplace. - December 2016
