"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville emerges from a parcel in the famed Vine Hill Ranch. Powerful and structured, but with less of the opulence of the other wines in the range, the 2012 is going to need a few years in bottle to fully blossom. Graphite, smoke, crushed flower and red stone fruits are laced into the finish. There is a real sense of power and gravitas that runs through the 2012." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

"A big, muscular, Pauillac-like effort, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville exhibits copious aromas of forest floor, unsmoked, high-quality cigar tobacco, crème de cassis, licorice and cedarwood. It is a deep, full-bodied, beautiful example of this dramatic, ostentatious vintage. The fruit is ripe, the tannins are sweet, and the wine is long and heady. Drink it over the next 12-15 years." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.
