WE 93 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Cellar Selection! - "Bold aromas, thick layers of fruit flavor, and a supple but steely texture of fine tannins and acidity add up to a powerful and complex wine that should improve with age. Pure, dark-fruit flavors are accented by smoke and cardamom while the structure is mouthpuckering with astringency but softened by the richness of body and fruit. Best after 2019."
According to Wine Spectator - "A wine of substance and density, firm, rich and concentrated, with a tight core of mineral and gravel-laced dark berry, espresso, cedar and graphite flavors, ending with dry, chewy tannins. Drink now through 2024."
Tasting Notes - "A rich and elegant offering, this is quintessential mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of sweet, ripe red plums and black cherries are complimented with hints of vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. In the mouth, the wine is full, juicy and sweet with ripe cherries, plums and tannins that are expansive yet round. Ending with a kiss of spicy oak, this wine is certainly a crowd pleaser now, but will also reward the patient collector of fine Cabernet Sauvignon." 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot. 14.3% ABV.
