Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Patriarch shows a deep garnet-purple color with a cassis, spiced plums, black cherry compote, menthol, chocolate box, earth and tobacco nose. Medium to full-bodied in the plush, spicy mouth, it's expressive with lovely balance, soft acid and velvety tannins, finishing long.

Wine SpectatorLoaded up, with lots of mouthfilling raspberry, plum and boysenberry confiture flavors pumping through, enlivened by a well-buried bramble note and backed by a singed alder echo on the finish that lends cut and drive. Best from 2020 through 2036.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a thick, concentrated wine from the producer's estate site on the eastern benches of the appellation. Leather, earth and blue and red fruit meld together within firm sizable tannins and prominent oak. The wine is made in a big full-bodied style.
