98The Wine Advocate

...scents of black cherries, blueberries and boysenberries plus hints of potpourri, sandalwood, Chinese five spice, cast-iron pan and fragrant earth. Characteristically full-bodied, rich and full-on seductive, the palate is packed with generous, perfumed black fruits, supported by firm, ripe tannins and well-knit freshness, finishing mineral-laced and with epic persistence.

98James Suckling

Intense blackberries and iodine with tile and spice. Energetic aromas. Full body. Lead pencil. Stone and black fruit. Tar and licorice.

98Jeb Dunnuck

...powerful notes of blackcurrant liqueur, chocolate, unsmoked tobacco, and gravelly earth...full-bodied richness, sweet tannins, and opulent texture...It’s a remarkable achievement for an incredibly talented team.

94Vinous / IWC

...gorgeous. Pliant and supple in feel, with lovely freshness... Super-ripe, inky red/purplish fruit, lavender, spice and rose petal are all front and center in this wonderfully expressive Cabernet. Even with all of its richness, the 2017 shows off its terrific sense of energy, too.
