92 Points, Wine Advocate - Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is very promising, revealing a youthfully primary bouquet of currants and plums that are already integrated its new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, richly structured and generous, with a sun-kissed core of fruit and a dry, fine-grained finish. A
cuvee that includes purchased fruit, this is typically a great value. I'm looking forward to seeing it from the bottle.
91 Points, Vinous - (60% new French oak) Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Intense cherry and red berry scents, along with hints of cracked pepper,
and vanilla. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated red currant, bitter
spicecake flavors that deepen slowly and turn sweeter on the back half. Fine-grained tannins build on a long, spice-laced finish that leaves behind a suggestion of cherry compote. In the context of top-notch California Cabernets, this wine delivers remarkable value.

briarwood, fig, and dried thyme.
