    Robert Parker Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Reserve is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in 50% new French oak. This has a more saturated purple color, a glorious extract and richness, built with a solid inner core of essence that is pure, dark and impressive. Some dusty/loamy undertones are present, but the dark blackberry and cassis fruit dominate this full-bodied beauty. It still has tannins to shed, but this wine should hit its peak in another 5-7 years and last a quarter-century or more."  Dec 2015

    Wine Spectator:  "A rugged style, with dense earth, gravel, graphite, berry and cedar flavors that give this a distinctive presence. The tannins are dense and extracted, but the slow-emerging dark berry fruit is captivating."  Nov 2016 
      
    Winery:  “Meticulous attention to detail. Estate grown fruit only. Beautiful, sunny Napa Valley terroir. And it's ready to drink now.”
