“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 55 Degrees Slope exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as beautiful, sweet crème de cassis, Asian plum sauce, licorice and forest floor notes. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, and impressive concentration, texture and length, this superb Cabernet can be drunk early in life because of its velvety opulence or cellared for two decades.” - Wine Advocate #216

“The 2012 Hidden Ridge is a sleek, sophisticated wine that over-delivers for the price. Opaque in the glass, it offers a heady bouquet of black berries, cassis, and anise. The palate is rich and densely packed, displaying opulent dark fruit, spice box and graphite. This is a treat to drink now, but definitely has the legs to go for 15-20 years.” - California Wine Advisors
