Wine SpectatorRefined and well-structured, with expressive blackberry and coffee bean aromas and rich, polished savory spice and fresh sage flavors that glide toward plump tannins. Drink now through 2026. 262 cases made.
Wine AdvocateSporting a deep purple/ruby color, the 2013 Reserve is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot. It offers classic dark fruits, (currants, plum), chocolate, roasted herbs and even a touch of meatiness to go with a medium to full-bodied, supple, impressively textured style on the palate. This has real depth and richness (especially in the vintage) and should keep for 15 years or more.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of fruit from top sites DuBrul (60%) and Klipsun. Appealing aromas of milk chocolate, herb, vanilla, French-oak spices and cherry lead to supple, focused cherry, date and spice flavors, capped off by an exceptionally long finish. It delivers both unabashed appeal and plenty of nuance.
