RP96+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 25th Sep 2018
"A barrel selection, the 2015 Proprietary Red Black Magic is deep garnet-purple with a nose of violets, lavender and cedar chest with core of red and black cherries, cassis, wild blueberries and tilled soil with cigar and espresso hints. The palate has a lot of oak at this stage and is full-bodied, firm, grainy and generously fruited, finishing long. 150 cases produced." (96+ pts.)

"Blackberries, black tea, dark oak and hints of cloves on the nose. Full body, firm and tannins and long, linear finish. A very tight and compressed palate. Needs two or three years to come together. Already so pretty." (95 pts.)
RP98+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Oct 2016
"The third potentially perfect wine from Tor Kenward is his 2015 Black Magic Proprietary Red, which is his selection of the best barrels, so why shouldn’t it be every bit as good as his top single-vineyard wines?" (98–100 pts.)
JD99 Jeb Dunnuck January 31, 2019
"The 2015 Black Magic is another magical effort that has some resemblance to the 2013 with its majestic, skyscraper-like texture and palate presence. Possessing a huge perfume of crème de cassis, ripe plums, incense, and dried flowers, it shows the opulence and sweetness of fruit that’s the hallmark of the 2015 vintage, layers of fine tannins, and a monster of finish. It’s thrilling stuff." (99 pts.)
When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).
The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
