96 POINTSRobert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
“Even better is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cloudy’s Vineyard, which ratchets up the level of concentration to something even beyond Beckstoffer with notes of graphite, crushed rock, white flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, camphor and subtle oak. It is deep, full-bodied and multidimensional with sweet tannins and low acidity.”

95 POINTSWine Enthusiast magazine
“This remarkable wine offers soft luxury between its balance of fresh red cherry and cassis and the velvety grip of tannic concentration. Spiky persistent acidity guides a freshness of forest floor, sage and tobacco, the power entirely graceful in the glass.”

94 POINTSJamesSuckling.com
“This has a linear edge through the middle of the wine that gives the bright fruit and firm tannins form and beauty.”

Consulting Winemaker’s Notes - Kirk Venge
“This wine is rich and layered with opulent blue fruit and notes of graphite, violets and spice. Aromatics of a floral nature with lots of nuance are heightened by a rich mouthfeel and a surprisingly delicate tannin structure.”
