100 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
"Pure perfection, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnement is a selection of the top barrels in the cellar and in 2016 comes mostly from To Kalon, with a small amount from the Estate Vineyard. Incredible in every way, with a huge nose of blackcurrants, chocolate, crushed rocks, tobacco, and incense, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a building, elegant texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a finish that won’t quit. This is Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at its finest. I’d be happy to drink bottles today, tomorrow, and in 25 years."
