93 points, JamesSuckling.com (December 2016) -- I like the juicy and fruity character to this wine with soft and silky tannins. Plum, currant and berry character reigns throughout. Full and flavorful finish. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Drink or hold.

Vineyard Notes:

The 2012 growing season was close to perfect, presenting few challenges. A fairly mild spring led to near-ideal bud break, uniform flowering and even fruit set. Relatively cool weather conditions throughout the summer months, with warm days and cool, foggy nights, allowed for long, even ripening. This fairly mild weather pattern gave us the opportunity to wait patiently for fruit maturity, and harvest on our own terms, without rush and worry of rain, rot or sunburn. Our yields were high and the quality stellar, with classic acid to sugar balance. Age worthy wines, dark in color and rich in concentrated flavors, are the marvelous result of this gorgeous growing season.
