“A very solid effort for its humble price point, Blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, plum, currant, chocolate and sage define the alluring nose. Tangy and tart with dark fruits, while juicy and savory towards the back end, with well integrated stylish oak. Offers grip and structure with refreshing delicacy, successfully striking that fine balance between power and finesse.” - 94 points, California Wine Advisors

“A success, revealing aromas of ripe plums, cassis, pencil shavings and espresso roast. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, rich and generous, with an ample core of fruit, juicy acids and a flavorful finish. It's a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (#237)
