90 pts Vinous
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyards has an attractive nose of brambly black fruit, singed leather, menthol and licorice, quite contained and focused. The palate is a little chewy on the entry, but then it settles down, offering blackberry and raspberry fruit mixed with hoisin and star anise, and a pinch of white pepper toward the finish. Enjoy this over the next decade. Drinking window: 2021 – 2031
Crimson red in color. Aromas full of ripe, wild strawbert, red and black cherries, mulberries, and black currant. Earthy, savory notes on the nose and palate followed by richness of fruit held in balance by its gravelly tannin structure and juicy acidity.
