Wine Advocate Review
Rated 94
The 2017 Nuns Canyon is a classically styled Cabernet Sauvignon with great freshness and restraint without lacking any fruit. The nose has lush cassis cut through with notes of iron, dried herbs, flowers and bitter chocolate. The palate is full-bodied, its ripe fruit tempered by mineral streaks. It has finely detailed tannic structure and finishes with great freshness. Drink Date: 2020-2035.

Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 94

An entirely varietal wine fermented in concrete, stainless steel and oak tanks, this is complex, structured and supremely earthy, with mineral traces throughout. Strawberry, cassis and vanilla provide a rich contrast to the cedar, sage and wisps of tobacco, the tannins powerfully present. Enjoy best from 2027 through 2037.

Wine Tasting Notes
A pure ruby robe in color, notes of fresh blackberry and cassis overlay savory tones of lavender, sage, graphite, tea leaf, soy and crushed rocks. A supple and silky attack on the palate is followed by dense, mouth-coating tannins that build a full, vertical and monolithic structure. This Hamel Family Wines Nuns Canyon Vineyard Moon Mountain District Sonoma Cabernet is persistent and powerful through its energy and sheer magnitude all the way to a chalky, mineral inflected finish. An impressive wine that will only benefit from time, be sure to watch this wine develop over the next twenty years and decant well in the near term.
