Critical Acclaim

WE95 Wine Enthusiast 3/1/2021

"This memorable Cabernet Sauvignon has small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec blended in. Aged 17 months in a majority of new French oak, it unfurls flavors of red fruit, dried herb and clove over a core of youthful tannin and spicy oak. Best from 2028–2038." (95 pts.)

SP92 Wine Spectator Dec 31, 2020

"This has good energy, with a brambly spine driving plum and black currant fruit along while a solid bolt of iron runs underneath. Savory and bay accents hang in the background throughout. Best from 2021 through 2031. 19,535 cases made." (92 pts.)

WS91 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2020

"A sleek cabernet, this blends Far Niente’s Oakville fruit with grapes from Rutherford, St. Helena and Calistoga. The wine developed its velvety texture over the course of 17 months in French oak barrels (65 percent new), and there’s a quiet back-and-forth between the oak and the fruit that keeps it dynamic. Decant it for charcuterie." (91 pts.)

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Nov 2020

"Composed of 93.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.8% Petit Verdot, 2.3% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Merlot and 0.1% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley was aged for 17 months in French oak, 65% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with notes of stewed plums, warm cassis and black raspberries with touches of pencil shavings, dried Provence herbs and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a real skip in its step, featuring bright, crunchy black and red fruits and a soft texture, finishing lively." (94 pts.)

JD95 Jeb Dunnuck January 27, 2021

"Including small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a deep purple color as well as classic Cabernet notes of blackcurrants, new leather, tobacco leaf, flowers, and lead pencil. Beautifully done on the palate and made in a seamless, elegant style, it has a kiss of Pauillac in its nicely integrated acidity, ripe, building tannins, a touch of earthiness, and a great finish. It’s not a blockbuster, just seamless and elegant, with a thrilling character. It should keep for 20+ years." (95 pts.)
