Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard (56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc) reveals a dense ruby/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of chocolate-covered black cherries and hints of cedar and licorice, medium to full body, superb richness and weight, and moderate tannins. Reminiscent of a 2005 classified growth Bordeaux, it should be at its peak between 2012-2030.

Wine SpectatorTightly wound, yet weaves together a complex maze of dried currant, savory herb, cedar, spice and loamy earth flavors that are intense, focused, young and compact. Needs time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2010 through 2016.
