Wine AdvocateA selection of the finest hillside blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve cuts a deeper swath, and offers more plum, blackcurrant, charcoal and earth characteristics. Medium to full-bodied and rich, it should improve over the next 5-7 years and last for 15 or more.

Wine SpectatorA sturdy, extracted, cellar-worthy candidate. Both firm and concentrated, this delivers a tight mix of dark berry, spice, cedar and loamy earth notes. Tannic now but should gain with time. Drink now through 2024. 9,244 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastStructured from the start, this wine provides succulent boysenberry and blackberry around a full-figured body that's otherwise steeped in vanilla and coffee, the toasted oak quite prevalent. It finishes slightly tart in dried herb and mushroom.
