Wine Spectator | Rating: 90An ultraripe style that pushes ripeness to the edge of prune without going over the top. Offers opulent and extracted plum, blackberry, blueberry and jam flavors, ending with ripe berry notes and extracted tannins. Drink now through 2028. 320 cases made.Author: James Laube
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91Bright red-ruby. Reserved blackberry and menthol aromas suggest a powerful wine. Dense and tactile on the palate; fatter, deeper and chewier than the 2011 but the dark berry and truffle flavors are still brooding and youthfully monolithic. The tannins are riper than those of the 2011 but still dusty and substantial. The original acre of cabernet sauvignon was planted here in 1996; this is the first vintage to include a bit of juice from a 2007 planting.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2014
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96The fabulous 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is virtually all 100% new oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon. A dense purple color is accompanied by smoky barbecue, charcoal, creme de cassis, coffee, chocolate and graphite notes. Full-bodied, opulent, fleshy and sensual, it can be consumed over the next 10-15 years.Author: Robert Parker

Ron and Anita Wornick purchased the last un-developed parcel from the original Meadowood development in 1995 and began the nearly decade-long process of clearing the rocks from what would eventually be their home and vineyard. The winery gets its name from a granite slab sculture that is the focal point of the compound.The first vines were planted in 1995 and the premiere release of the David Abreu-developed property is 2005. Wornick's background is in food science and his company was selected by the US military to produce the MRE (Meals, Ready to Eat) that revolutionized food delivery in the field. Additionally, over the last thirty years he and Anita have developed one of the most important contemporary craft collections in the world. The winemaking team is Aaron Pott, assisted by Roy Piper.
