94 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$36 list] Intensely dark berry aromas meet with earthy minerality, black olive and savory charred meat elements on the nose of this bottling. The complex palate pops with fresh blackberry and boysenberry flavors, which are wrapped in thick tannins but lifted by accents of elderflower and lilac. Alcohol 15%. (Nov 2021)"
Producer notes: "The greatest SYV Cabernet we have yet to produce, the 2018 balances its power and intensity with great texture and structure. Loaded and complex with aromas and flavors of cherry, cassis, roasted herbs, chocolate, vanilla, and earth, the 2018 has amazing balance and length, with great acidity and very ripe smooth tannins. A knockout!"
