93 points James Suckling - A solid Cabernet with black currant, mineral and mint character. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold. WS 92 WA 92 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "A classy style that’s taut, rich, structured and deep, with a layered mix of loamy earth, dried herb, dense licorice and dark berry, ac - cented by cedary oak and a sense of harmony and finesse. Ends with a drying, gravelly aftertaste. Drink now through 2026."
According to Robert Parker - "A juicy, vigorous, fresh wine, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Summit Vine Ranch (134 cases) exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with abundant cassis notes, and good structure, freshness and purity. Its uplifted, bright quality is noteworthy. It may improve dramatically during the next 10-15 years." 14.8% ABV.
