"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, which is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec, shows beautifully pure blueberry and blackberry fruit, incense and delicate floral notes, stunning concentration, purity, and a full-bodied mouthfeel that builds incrementally to a splendid finish of close to 45+ seconds. Certainly I can understand why they deem this a Reserve. They made less than 6,000 bottles of this wine that was aged in a combination of 91% French oak and 9% American oak. It should drink well for the next 20+ years."

Decanter, February 2017
"A nose dominated by oak flows onto flavours of liquorice and sweet spices, strawberry and red berries. Relatively forward, but balanced and supported by ripe tannins and elegant herbal nuances."
