Wine Spectator 92 points - This is marked by a strong herb and oak mixture and framed by a lively burst of red currant, red licorice, dusty, cedary oak and licorice notes. Drink now through 2030. 36,400 cases made. -JL.September/2017
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Dusty plum, tobacco and dark chocolate play against a soft texture in this varietal wine with a Merlot-like sensibility. Black and red currant and cherry mix well on the fruity palate, seasoned in appropriate measures of cedar, black pepper and clove..March/2018
Wine & Spirits 91 points - One taster described this as “yummy” in its chocolate-mousse tannins; another found it youthful and closed. That dichotomy runs through the wine, a contrast of rich, round textural pleasure and more seriously firm, mineral cool. There’s spicy red fruit at its core, adding to the wine’s youthful tension. Decant it for something as rich as braised oxtail, or let it develop further in the bottle..October/2017
James Suckling 90 points - Mint and berry aromas with hints of spices. Medium body, firm tannins and a medium finish. No reason to wait. Drink now. Always excellent..May/2017
Jeb Dunnuck 90 points - There’s an herbal edge to the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, yet it has solid intensity and purity to its cassis and blackberry fruit core. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and balanced, with fine tannin, it’s a well-made, thoroughly enjoyable Cabernet that will drink nicely for 10-15 years..December/2017
This is a delicious wine blended to showcase the rich diversity of great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
