Wine Spectator 92 points - Well-crafted, offering a mix of dense earth, cedar and dark berry flavors, with crushed rock, graphite, espresso and cigar box nuances. Ends with chewy tannins. Will benefit from some cellaring. Drink now through 2028. 8,600 cases made.

Wine Advocate 91 points - There are 2,800 cases of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. Composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a classic nose of licorice, underbrush, blackcurrants and toast. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and a lush, succulent, heady mouthfeel, it can be enjoyed over the next decade. (Dec 2014)
