“This 100% Cabernet delivers pure elegance, offering terrifically balanced notes of dark fruit, blackberries, chocolate-covered cherries and cassis, with a perfumed scent of violets. The mouthfeel is velvety, refined with well integrated tannins showing spicy oak accents on the delightfully long finish. A terrific Cabernet to savor now (decanting recommended prior to 2022) and savvy collectors will savor this gem for at least 5-6 years.” - California Wine Advisors

“…the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is even better, with an awesome bouquet of sweet cassis, cedarwood, incense, and dried flowers. As with all the wines from Celia Welch, this beauty is impeccably balanced, has medium to full-bodied richness and depth, subtle background oak, and a great finish. It shines for its purity and elegance as well as its depth of fruit and intensity. Drink it over the coming two decades or more.” - Jeb Dunnuck
