This remarkable label has already been featured in these pages twice—no mean feat, given that this is only the third vintage of Promise. Made in exceedingly small quantities (fewer than 250 cases per vintage) from 100-percent Rutherford fruit, this blend elicited from Robert M. Parker a long string of adjectives that included “spectacular,” “classic,” and even “profound.” ($225)
