James Suckling 95
A tight cabernet with a core of attractive blackberries and blackcurrants, as well as undertones of mint and sage. Tar, too. Full body and polished, integrated tannins. Flavorful finish. Serious wine.

Wine Advocate 94
Composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon MMXVII is deep garnet-purple in color. It charges out of the gate with bold black and red cherries notes, followed by a core of mulberries and cassis with hints of Indian spices and roses. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and full-on seductive, featuring mouth-coating black fruit layers offset by great freshness and seductively plush tannins, finishing long and spicy.
