Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (at a very fair price, by the way) has beautiful blackcurrant fruit, blackberry, underlying earth and spice, medium to full body, a long finish and sweet, moderate tannin. A rather classic example of Napa viticulture and still available at a shockingly realistic price. This beautiful wine is young, but reflects the greatness of 2013, and should promise to improve and evolve for another 15-20 years.

Wine SpectatorWell done and rich, centered on a core of dusty, loamy earth and dried berry, with shades of anise and cedar. Has room to grow and should gain with some cellar time. Drink now. 6,658 cases made.
