Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Centered on a tight, structured mix of dark berry, currant, licorice and spicy, cedary oak that casts touches of mocha and herb. Intense without being weighty, this is balanced, persistent and well done. Drink now through 2030. 1,013 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 91Typical of the vintage, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits loads of upfront fruit, with dark strawberries, black cherries and some currants in a charming, lush, seductive, medium to full-bodied style with low acidity. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.Author: Robert Parker
