91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Lithe and polished, with elegantly layered cherry, toasty, spice and espresso flavors that glide toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024. 6,359 cases made." -TF, 11/30/19

89 Points - Vinous
"Healthy dark red. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and mint. Juicy, delineated flavors of blackberry, cassis, blueberry, boysenberry and dark chocolate are complicated but not overshadowed by herbs, menthol and spices. Still a bit tight and medicinal, with its black and blue fruit flavors showing a menthol quality, but I like this wine's definition and energy. Finishes firm and persistent, with nicely buffered tannins. Good Cabernet Sauvignon structure here." -ST, Dec/2019</p/>
