“This has a deliciously ripe and perfumed nose of blueberries, cloves, potpourri and gravel. It’s full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins and fresh acidity. Creamy and elegant with a driven, focused finish. Cooler and more refined at the end.” - James Suckling

“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is brilliant, and up with the crème de la crème at the price point. Lots of cassis, graphite, unsmoked tobacco, new leather, and cedar notes all give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, beautifully balanced 2018. As with all these 2018s, it shows the pure, elegant style of the vintage and is going to age gracefully.” - Jeb Dunnuck

“A barrel-sample blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is deep purple-black colored and features aromas of crushed red and black currants, warm plums, mulberries and black raspberries with hints of wild sage, tilled soil and tapenade plus a waft of pencil lead. Full-bodied, fresh and crunchy in the mouth, the palate offers bags of vibrant fruit and a firm, fine-grained frame, finishing on a mineral note.” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
