Wine EnthusiastJuicy black cherry and blueberry wrap around big, expansive tannins in this hearty red that is sourced from several of the producer's best sites. With a backbone of structure and oak, it's toasty in character yet robustly fruity.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and scented of crushed blackberries, wild blueberries and warm plums with touches of underbrush, bay leaves and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied with an approachable frame of fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, the palate reveals plenty of crunchy black fruits, finishing with great purity.

Wine SpectatorThe dusty, savory herb scents and dried berry flavors are very complete, rendering a wine that's balanced and harmonious, ending with firm, earth-laced tannins. Drink now through 2029. 14,349 cases made.
