“This is a sumptuous new release from Jones Family that reminds us why we adore the stunning 2016 vintage in Napa. Launching forth with juicy blueberries and black raspberries, and subtle savory notes, this hedonistic experience floats gracefully across the palate with dark plums and alluring notes of maple and mocha. Showing fabulous complexity, this dense Cabernet is firing on all cylinders. Decant for an hour if enjoying tonight or allow it to evolve over the next decade in your cellar.” - California Wine Advisors

“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is absolutely gorgeous. Floral aromatics and a rush of red fruit give the 2016 lift, freshness and brightness to play off the fruit density and structure that come so easily here. Incredibly inviting and delicious, the 2016 is simply impossible to resist. Crushed rose petal, chocolate, mint and sage add attractive savory top notes as this super-expressive Cabernet continues to open up in the glass.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate needs a little coaxing to reveal slowly emerging scents of wild blueberries, blackcurrant cordial and warm black plums with touches of sandal wood, allspice, pencil shavings and fragrant earth. The full-bodied palate is decadently fruited with impactful black and blue fruit layers, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and savory.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
