90 points James Suckling"A juicy and fruity red with plum and dried berry character. Some terracotta too. Full and velvety tannins. Very drinkable now but will improve with age." Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot
94 points Decanter"A brooding and reserved bouquet opens up with air, revealing aromas of crushed currants, sweet tobacco and pencil shavings. On the palate, the wine is powerful and full-bodied, with a chassis of firm but fine savoury tannins, underpinned by a good line of acid. This is more taut, structural and incipiently complex than its Napa counterpart, and will reward some time in the cellar. Drinking Window: 2018-2033

98 points James Suckling"Fabulous aromas of currants, licorice and eucalyptus. Full body with an intense backbone of acidity and tannins. Chewy but wonderfully polished. Turns to terracotta. Firm and silky. Great wine. Try it in 2018. 3,000 cases."

98 points The Wine Advocate"...Offering up plenty of creme de cassis, coffee bean, toasted spice, pencil shavings and violet-like qualities on the nose, it has palate staining levels of extract and tannin that come through on the mid-palate and finish. Gorgeously full-bodied, layered and textured, with perfect balance, this awesome Cabernet needs to be forgotten for 5-6 years and will have two to three decades of longevity. Drink 2018-2030."
