ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 96-98 POINTS - "A barrel sample (expected to be in barrel three years), the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep purple-black in color and a little closed on the nose, giving glimpses at notes of blueberry compote, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis with a waft of camphor, pencil lead, cedar chest, black tea and underbrush plus hints of truffles and lavender. The palate is full, rich and super concentrated, with a firm frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and mineral laced."
JEB DUNNUCK 96 POINTS - "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is even better. With gorgeous creme de cassis, white flowers, tobacco leaf, and graphite-laced aromatics, it's balanced, has ultra-fine tannins, and a great, great finish. This is a killer 2016 that builds with time in the glass, has serious class, and will keep for 20 years or more."
