Wine Spectator
Ripe and gutsy, punchy and lively, marrying tarry-edged grip with a mix of steeped fig, blackberry and blueberry fruit flavors before the singed sage, juniper and black tea accents weave in on the finish. Cellar for maximum effect. J.M. - Wine Spectator, August 6, 2020
Wine Advocate
The 2017 Proprietary Red Wine Reserve is composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec and 6% Merlot. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with open-knit scents of boysenberries, warm cassis and fruitcake with touches of Indian spices, charcoal and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives mouth-coating black fruit preserves and earthy layers, framed by grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note.

Wine Enthusiast
A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 6% Malbec, this wine is thick, concentrated and powerful in sticky, grippy tannin. Black fruit, leather and dried herb combine across a foundation of toasted oak and baking spice that appeal in full-bodied intensity. Virginie Boone - Wine Enthusiast, November 16, 2020
