Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a beauty, with notes of graphite, white flowers, blackcurrants, coffee bean and white chocolate. The wine has fabulous fruit on the attack and midpalate, a full body, sweet tannin and a long finish. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 86There are plenty of nice parts here, from the smoky, toasty oak to the rich core of black licorice and berry. Rustic, edgy and chewy in texture, leaving one hoping this will smooth out in the bottle. Drink now through 2028. 1,000 cases made.Author: James Laube
