“This is a luscious, beautifully concentrated Cabernet that is velvety in texture and tone. Complex notes of blackberry, plum, chocolate, graphite, sage, dried red cherry and cassis complement the persistent finish that includes hints of cigar, espresso, leather and plush tannin. The creamy oak is well integrated with this wonderfully balanced crowd pleaser. Easily worth multiples of its humble price given the depth and pedigree.” - California Wine Advisors

“Bressler’s Cabernets are fleshy and open, with plenty of appeal and a general radiance that reflects the personality of this warm site tucked away in a part of St. Helena that remains undiscovered.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (11/13)
