#95 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys 2020 – 87 pts

Spicy notes of whole coriander and green peppercorn dance atop fruity tones of black plum and berry fruits on the nose of this red wine. The palate offers more astringent and gripping black fruit-skin flavors that carry through to the dry, medium-length finish, alongside hints of char and sweet smoke.

86 pts Wine Advocate March 2020
A bit simple on the nose, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers scents of wild strawberry with hints of black raspberry and subtle green savory tones. In the mouth, the wine is medium-bodied, angular and slightly clunky across the mid-palate but has structured tannins. It ends with a simple finish and would do well at a barbecue.
