95+ points, The Wine Advocate

"A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve displays a deep garnet-purple color and notes of blackcurrant cordial, plum pudding, dried mulberries and mincemeat pie with touches of Indian spices, chargrill, dried Mediterranean herbs and charcoal. Full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of black fruit preserves flavors with an herbal lift and a grainy texture plus just enough freshness, finishing on a lingering smoked-meat note."         - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
