Wine EnthusiastSourced largely from the Martin Stelling Vineyard behind the winery in the western shade of Oakville, this wine opens with charred oak and a smoky, meaty character that intrigues. Seamless on the palate in soft, perceptible tannin, it delves into characteristics of cedar and brushy sage as it goes, unveiling a wildness that's hard to contain. Its bright, fresh finish gives it a roundness that's ready to enjoy now.

Wine AdvocateThis iconic estate has produced the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Beautiful purity of expression characterizes this medium to full-bodied, concentrated, impeccably well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. The color is dense purple and the wine offers up notes of spring flowers a touch of background licorice and wood and pure floral crème de cassis and blackberry fruit. It's full-bodied with a complete mid-palate and follow-through on the palate. The wine can be approached now, or cellared for 20 or more years.

Wine SpectatorA refreshingly crisp and lively youngster, with snappy cherry, currant, plum and raspberry flavors at the core, showing shades of anise, crushed rock and oak. Impressively light-footed for Cabernet. Drink now through 2032. 11,575 cases made.
