"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a smoking value and has high-quality Cabernet notes of crème de cassis, spice, vanilla bean, and fruitcake-like nuances. It’s charming, sweetly fruited, medium to full-bodied, and certainly already delicious."

"This offers a ripe array of blackcurrants and attractive, violet-like florals, leading to a palate that has a suave, rich and ripe feel and delivers a spice-laced finish. Drink or hold."

"Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot, 2% Malbec and 1% Petite Sirah, aged for 20 months in 38% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve is deep garnet-purple in color. Just bottled last week, it's already showing open and expressive blackberries, blackcurrant and warm plums notes with touches of tobacco leaf and underbrush plus a waft of menthol. The palate is medium to full-bodied with lovely freshness and vibrancy, textured with plush tannins and finishing with a menthol lift. 20,776 cases produced."

"This is the kind of simple, clearly stated varietal cabernet that’s rare today in Napa Valley. It’s not ambitious or aggressively extracted, just firmly defined in its juicy tannins and red-currant undertones. Smoke, coffee and cherry-compote flavors emerge with air, though the best thing about the wine remains its silky texture."
