97 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (October 2016)

The 2012 Promontory, which is the softest vintage to date, was slightly better this year than last year, as it had rounded out. It does not have the depth of the 2013, but it is a great wine on its own merits. Notes of new saddle leather, loamy soil, and crushed rock intermingle with blackcurrants, plum, tobacco leaf and spice in a full-bodied, wonderfully pure and large-scaled style with ripe, well-integrated tannin.

It is accessible enough to enjoy, and in spite of its massiveness, it is certainly capable of evolving beautifully for 30 or more years.

96 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (October 2016)

The 2012 Promontory is a terrific example of the vintage. Soft, radiant and charming, the 2012 will drink well pretty much upon release and certainly earlier than any other vintage. The 2012 is a sophisticated and super-polished wine.
