Wine Spectator 90 points - A solid, grippy version, and a bit of a throwback, with dark charcoal and well-singed cedar notes lining the dark currant and plum sauce flavors. Shows a loamy echo through the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018. 8,275 cases made.-JM

Vinous 87 points - (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc): Healthy dark red. Inviting aromas of plum, raspberry, mocha, cola, leather and nutty oak. Plush on entry, then a bit green in the middle, with the wine’s slightly edgy acidity and new oak element currently impinging on the red fruit flavors. Finishes with dusty tannins and a leathery note. Will this harmonize with a couple more years in bottle?
