2017 Siegel Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - 87 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 87 pts"Gamy aromas of olive, brine and mulchy earth accent berry fruit on a nose that screams “old school Chile.” A tight, firm palate with rubbing tannins holds lightly herbal and spicy flavors of berry fruit and mint, while olive and green notes are draped all over the finish of this hot-year Cabernet. - Michael Schachner"

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Earthy, damp berry aromas are a touch rubbery, while a flush, obtuse palate is easygoing. Earthy berry flavors are round, plump and steady through a finish where some acidity finally appears. - Michael Schachner"

vinous logo 250"Youthful purple. Dark berries, cherry liqueur, vanilla and clove on the deeply perfumed nose. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up. Picks up a smoky quality with air and finishes long, spicy and smooth; harmonious tannins add shape and gentle grip. - Josh Raynolds"

wine enthusiast 88 pts"This wine's ripe black cherry and cassis aromas include a tobacco note. The palate is forward and a bit aggressive, with chocolaty blackberry and brown sugar flavors with herbal underpinnings. It finishes fruity and bold. - Michael Schachner"

vinous logo 250"Glass-staining ruby. Powerful aromas of cherry pit, cassis, pipe tobacco, violet and leather. Sweet and focused in the mouth, offering chewy red and black fruit flavors and a jolt of peppery spices. The spice and dark berry flavors carry through a long, smoky finish, which is shaped by dusty, late-arriving tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
