The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. It is still in barrel and will age about 18 months in 50% new French oak. The nose opens with tar, cassis and gentle blue fruit touches with notes of dried herbs, milk chocolate and coffee beans. The medium to full-bodied palate is lushly fruited but very fresh, with lifted herbal character, bright freshness and a firm but very finely grained structure, finishing long.

93 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

Deep, shimmering ruby. Red and black currant, smoky oak and a hint of vanilla on the highly perfumed nose. Stains the palate with pliant cassis, bitter cherry, mocha and floral pastille flavors, while spice and mineral nuances lend back-end cut. Fleshy and deep but surprisingly lively as well, with well-knit tannins framing a finish that displays excellent focus and strong, fruity persistence. 50% new French oak.

92 Jeb Dunnuck -

A mix of estate and purchased grapes brought up in 50% new French oak, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a pretty bouquet of spiced black fruits, spring flowers, graphite, and lead pencil notes. It has a wonderful elegance as well as full-bodied richness, no hard edges, and a great finish. It will stand up to any Cabernet at this price in California.
