Wine AdvocateA truly fabulous wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which incorporates 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, all of which was aged 22 months in 75% new French oak. This inky colored, sensationally textured and polished 2013 gives up classic young Cabernet notes of cassis, licorice, graphite, sweet oak and spring flowers. Full-bodied, pure and nicely concentrated, it has a solid kick of ripe tannin, and needs to be forgotten for 5-6 years. This beauty will have two to three decades of overall longevity.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of fruit from six different vineyards across the valley. Alluring aromas of cassis, earth, spice, vanilla and flowers are followed by a structured palate, with enough tannic heft to reward time in the cellar.
Wine SpectatorBroad and expressive, layering cherry, plum and red pepper flavors against a blanket of fine tannins, finishing on an herbal note. Needs cellaring. Best after 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,000 cases made.
