93 POINTS - "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is absolutely delicious. Ripe, radiant and seductive, the 2015 is going to be nearly impossible to resist young. Even so, there is plenty of structural underpinning beneath all of the fruit. Sweet floral notes develop in the glass, adding lift, but above all else, the 2015 is a wine of textural voluptuousness, all in a silky, mid-weight style that is hugely appealing." - Vinous
90 POINTS - "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is scented of baked berries, mulberries and kirsch with hints of espresso, black soil and tree bark. Full, rich and spicy in the mouth with slightly hard, chewy tannins, it finishes long and earthy." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Gorgeous black fruit, gravel, violets, black cherry, anise, juicy palate with nice stucture and velvety tannins along with chocolate flavors. Finishes with very elegant bittersweet tannins.
