The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with pleasant red fruit aromas complemented by subtle oak spice. Notes of pencil shavings, graphite, blackberry, plum and dark cherry come through, creating a ripe and juicy nose. The palate is medium to full-bodied and offers balanced tannins with a refined focus on fresh oak spices. The finish is spicy with lingering hints of soft herbs and cigar box flavors. This wine is currently drinking well and has the potential to improve with time. The wine aged for two years in French oak barrels, 50% new. 72,000 bottles produced. Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has a glorious, feisty bouquet of blackberry, wild strawberry and cassis aromas that burst from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a silky-smooth texture and a cohesive, poised finish that is irresistible. Simply a top-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Neal Martin, Vinous
