91 - 93 Points Wine Advocate
"A barrel sample composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon with 12% Petit Verdot and 10% Merlot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve displays notes of crème de cassis, pure plums, beef drippings, iron ore and dried herbs with touches of pencil lead and cedar. The fruit on the medium-bodied palate is totally singing at this nascent stage, offering vibrant blackberry layers, nice ripe tannins and a long, earthy finish."
93 Points Vinous
"(50% new French oak) Opaque ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented dark fruit, rose pastille, vanilla and cola aromas, along with smoky oak and cola overtones. Palate-staining cherry, black currant and spicecake flavors are lifted and sharpened by a spine of juicy acidity. Gains flesh and weight with air and finishes appealingly sweet and very long, displaying persistent dark berry and spice notes and smooth, slow-mounting tannins."
