    Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled prances out of the glass with gorgeous black cherries, molten chocolate, licorice and warm cassis scents plus underlying notions of candied violets, cigar box and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses great elegance and bags of poise with wonderfully ripe, plush tannins framing the perfumed black fruits, finishing very long and layered."  Oct 2018

    Jeb Dunnuck:  "A wine that incorporates 3% Petite Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled is a beautifully classic, elegant red that has ample blackberry, cassis, crushed rock, and graphite aromas and flavors, full-body, beautiful balance, and the purity of fruit that's the hallmark of this vintage. It will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and drink nicely for 15+. It's a thrilling, complete Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that does everything right."  Jan 2019

    Winery:  "Beautiful aromas of blackberry and boysenberry pie, cassis, licorice and sweet anise, pair gorgeously with hints of lightly toasted oak. A silky entry transitions to a very smooth midpalate with flavors of mixed berry fruit, light toasted oak, and sweet licorice. Well-structured and polished, this wine is filled with juicy acid and fine grain tannins that melt into a long mouthwatering finish."
