Wine Advocate | Rating: 92From Spring Mountain, the rich, deep, ruby/purple-colored 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Marston Vineyard offers notes of blueberries, black raspberries and spring flowers.Author: Robert Parker
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(from vines planted at 1,170 feet): Full medium ruby. Lively aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and fruity dark chocolate. Densely packed but tightly coiled, showing good peppery energy to its dark berry, licorice and mineral flavors. Intensely flavored and persistent, finishing with a firm spine of ripe tannins. Very 2011 in its texture.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2014
Wine Spectator | Rating: 86Intense and tannic, dry and cedary, with dried berry, sage and underbrush flavors, making for an all-around tough-edged effort. The better of two bottles tasted.Author: James Laube
