"Bright and juicy, with a thin layer of fine tannins underpinning the fresh currant and red berry flavors, lingering on the focused finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,000 cases made. –HS" - Wine Spectator (August 31st 2014), 87 pts
"The Limestone Coast, which encompasses the noted regions of Coonawarra and Padthaway, is known for its Cabernet and its big gum trees. There's certainly more than a bit of mint to this wine, but there are also notes of cassis and even a hint of bell pepper. It does turn a bit astringent on the finish, so pair it with lamb chops or hamburgers. Drink now–2020." - Wine Enthusiast (October 2015), 88 pts
"Deep ruby. Fresh blueberry and cherry on the fragrant, spice-accented nose and palate. Juicy dark fruit flavors show good energy and focus thanks to zesty acidity. Lively and tannin-free, with an echo of spiciness on the smooth finish. - Josh Raynolds" - Vinous (July 2014), 89 pts
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a juicy, cassis-scented wine. Medium in body, it shows crisp acids and soft tannins, being quite sleek and linear in style. Drink it over the next few years. - Joe Czerwinski" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Interim end of September 2018), 87 pts
"Deep, glistening violet. Ripe dark berries, cherry liqueur, licorice and a hint of vanilla on the nose and palate. Plush, warm and round, with soft tannins on a nicely persistent finish that features a touch of jammy dark fruit. - Josh Raynolds"
