93 Pointes - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
"Plenty of tough mountain tannins in this classically-huge Howell Mountain Cabernet. Combined with dryness and acidity, it makes for one tough drink. Deep down is a solid core of blackberries, complexed with spices and earthy-mineral notes. This is surely one to age. Hold until 2018, and could go well beyond that."

"A complex weave of flavors nicely focused on supple plum and black cherry fruit. Spicy, with touches of cedar and mocha, firming on the finish where the finish fans out. Drink now through 2022. "
