Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

The Cabernet Sauvignon dominated 2012 The Illusionist, which incorporates 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, is another straight-up brilliant effort from this team. Crème de cassis, smoked herbs, lead pencil shavings and hints of licorice all give way to a full-bodied, ripe, concentrated and balanced Cabernet that has the purity and texture to drink well in its youth, yet the class and depth to evolve for 15 years.
