About

91

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is opaque ruby-black in color. It has a very classic Cabernet nose of pencil shavings, blackcurrant fruit and bud, new leather, potting soil, herbs and soy sauce. The palate is full-bodied, dense and muscular but with great freshness to lift the long finish. This will benefit from another couple of years in bottle. 1,250 cases produced."

90 Wine Spectator

"This sports strong singed savory notes out front, with a mix of steeped red and black currant fruit chasing them from behind. Bramble and anise elements score the finish, which shows a slightly rambunctious edge. Needs to settle in with some cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2025. 1,250 cases made. -- JM"
