Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate bursts out of the glass with beautiful black cherry compote, warm cassis and freshly crushed blackberries scents plus touches of chargrill, violets, dark chocolate and pencil shavings and a waft of English lavender. Full-bodied, the palate features great intensity combined with fantastic freshness, textured by soft, finely grained tannins and lifted by the most gorgeous floral perfume, finishing long and layered. Beautiful wine.
Wine SpectatorWarm and alluring in feel, featuring creamy yet structured layers of crushed red currant, plum and raspberry fruit. Long, with threads of leather, cedar, savory and warm tobacco filling in throughout. A very steady Cabernet that should age well. Best from 2020 through 2032. 2,800 cases made.
