Wine Advocate 90 points - A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Sirah, 6% Petit Verdot, 1% Syrah and 1% Merlot, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa reveals notes of creme de cassis, unsmoked cigar tobacco and spice box in its surprisingly deep yet supple, medium to full-bodied personality. With excellent purity, texture and length, this delicious, approachable, high quality Cabernet can be enjoyed over the next 7-10 years. The good news is that there is lots of it. (Oct 2014)
The 2008 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from several of Sonoma County's most prestigious appellations and blended seamlessly to bring together the unique characteristics of each vineyard, creating a superbly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. Made to accentuate the high-toned, delightful fruits of Sonoma County's vineyards, this wine offers many layers, featuring aromas and flavors of red cherry, plum and blackberry fruit with an underlying dry creek dustiness. The round, full mouthfeel has just enough structure to lead it into a fruit focused finish.
