Wine Advocate | Rating: 95A beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from Quivet, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Pellet Vineyard shows gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit, sweet tannin, a full-bodied mouthfeel and terrific purity and texture. This is a big-time winner and should continue to drink well for another 15-20 years.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 88The chewy tannins show a graceful side, with forthcoming savory berry, cherry, plum and cedary oak flavors. Ends dry and tannic.Author: James Laube
