WS 94pts. - JS 92pts. WE 93pts. - Winemaker Notes - Our Oakville District Cabernet Sauvignon offers a distinctive flavor profile. The rich, fruit-focused style and bold tannins define the beauty and intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon coming from the Oakville growing region of Napa Valley. Rated 90+
According to the Wine Spectator: A supple, graceful, yet potent and engaging young Cabernet, the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. Shows intense, minty bay leaf and dried currant and berry flavors that unfold gracefully, picking up a nice minerally edge as well as tannins that are firm yet graceful and refined. Drink now through 2020.
According to James Suckling: This is very well done with aromas of berries, fresh mint and licorice. Full body with a spicy palate as well as plenty of fruit and bright acidity. A balanced and well-integrated wine. This can age. Give it a year or two to come together more
According to Wine Enthusiast - A deeply flavored, impressive Cabernet, rich in fruit and magnificently structured. Hits it out of the park with ripe blackberries and cassis that finish sweet in toasty oak. The tannins are pure Oakville, soft and complex.
