Wine Spectator Review | 89 points:
"Firm, with smoke and toasty overtones to the green olive and blackberry flavors. Lightly grippy on the taut finish. Best from 2015 through 2018. 126 cases made." -- HS
The Wine Advocate Review | 89 points:
"Showing more dry tannin, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium to full-bodied, savory, chewy effort that gives up plenty of black currant, dried spice, leather and underbrush on the nose. Coming from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot and aged 22 months in 70% new French oak, it has solid mid-palate depth, so it should evolve reasonably well. Nevertheless, the tannin profile will be something to watch."
Vinous.com Review | 88 points:
"Good dark ruby-red. Cassis, licorice, cola and brown spices on the nose. Pliant and spicy, showing good texture and intensity to its flavors of redcurrant, graphite and cola. Finishes with firm, building tannins, good length and a bit of warmth." -- Stephen Tanzer
