#49 Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019

Opaque, deep, dark and dense. Ya, this Cabernet Sauvignon has astounding depth in color and flavor. Blackberry, black plum, cigar box. Silky smooth and continuing long with pencil lead and wet earth. With a finish that says WTF. Okay... Look that one up. Tremendous.

Jeb DunnuckThe base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant, and as Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a value that’s hard to beat! Classic black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort that stays pure, impeccably balanced, and vibrant on the palate. It’s the real deal, and if it was from Napa, it would sell for 3-4 times the price.

James Suckling A very appealing, all-round cabernet that gets all the treatment, in terms of natural-yeast fermentation and extended maceration in purpose-built tanks. It is made from vineyards with dedicated, higher-density planting to achieve the right level of ripeness and depth. The nose has abundant cassis with cooler, leafy aromas, as well as a very composed palate that delivers deep purple fruit and impressive length.

Wine SpectatorPrecise and vibrantly structured, with black cherry, espresso and spice flavors that take on richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Cs Cabernet Sauvignon has an open core of good, juicy black fruit with a soft but classic focus of blackberries, cherries and subtle black plum. The flavors continue on the medium-bodied palate with pleasurable yet straightforward expressions for this keenly priced Cabernet. The wine delivers pleasure on the finish with a focus on healthy fruit. Priced under $20, this is a solid buy. 130,000+ cases produced.

Wine EnthusiastDistracting aromas of mesquite smoke and char are followed by notes of cherry and herb. Sleek but plentiful plum and smoke flavors follow. The tannins give a light grip.
