  • Robert Parker
    (2012 Vintage) The well-made 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses good tannic grip, a Bordeaux-styled structural personality, a dark ruby/purple color, attractive blackcurrant fruit and spice box notes and medium body. Although somewhat reserved, it promises to unfold over the next decade or more.
  • Wine Spectator
    (2012 Vintage) Restrained and lacking focus, this is complex, with cedary herb, dried berry, fresh-turned earth and dill flavors, ending with a gravelly aftertaste. Drink now through 2024. 17,942 cases made.-JL
