“Classic” 96 Points
“This lush and full-bodied Cabernet offers seriously impressive structure, bold dark fruit, and tremendous complexity. Sumptuous aromas of currant, blackberry, plum and hints of tobacco develop on the palate to include dark chocolate and roasted espresso. Offering both pure Napa fruit and subtle minerality, this Cabernet is destined to age beautifully for at least a decade and drink well for another 5-10 years.” - California Wine Advisors
