93 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Distinctions is blended of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Sirah, aged in 35% new French oak for 20 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts from the glass with crème de cassis, blueberry pie and preserved plums over nuances of Chinese five spice, hoisin, chocolate box and dusty soil. Full-bodied, rich and decadent, it has loads of spicy layers and a firm, grainy backbone, finishing on an earthy note. Drink: 2018-2033. (Oct 2018)"
93 points James Suckling: "This shows a ripe and flavorful center palate with dark-berry and floral character. Full-bodied, framed and focused. Drink or hold. (May 2019)"
