    Wine Enthusiast "This is the winery's basic Cabernet, but there’s nothing common about it. It’s dry and complex and moderately ageworthy, a hillside Cabernet that revels in its plush, firm tannins and ripe fruit. There’s a minerality that seems to come from the soil, with expressive blackberry, currant, chocolate and anise flavors. Really fine now after a decant, and should develop through this decade." 94 Points Wine Spectator "Very tightly wound, firm and taut, rich and full-bodied, offering intense mineral, blackberry, plum and currant fruit, with floral and sage hints. Ends with gripping tannins, but on the finish the flavors slowly unwind and expand. Needs time. Decant. Best from 2011 through 2020." 92 Points Wine & Spirits "Mochachino scents of oak come first, followed by a blast of cherry fruit, the chocolate and cherry flavors expanding into a vast wine, crushed by a mineral stomp of tannin in the end. This is powerful without being superripe or hot, just impressively huge. Serve it to your power-hungry friends." 92 Points The Wine Advocate "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with sweet tannin, lots of blueberry, boysenberry and black currant fruit, a hint of spring flowers, a medium to full-bodied texture, and a supple, seamless personality. It should drink well for 15 or more years." 91 Points
