96 points Wine Spectator: "This has the vivid, driven cassis, boysenberry and blackberry fruit of the vintage, but it's well-harnessed, with streaks of racy anise, alder and sweet bay leaf providing focus and precision. There's a long echo of iron and savory through the finish as the fruit lingers, leaving a mouthwatering feel. Understated in style compared with its colleagues, but no less complex. Best from 2022 through 2038. (10/31/21)"
94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of ripe blackberries, blueberries, plums, earth, lavender and bark. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Balanced and juicy with a caressing texture and a bright core of spiced fruit. Elegant. Drink from 2023. (12/5/21)"
93 points Matthew Luczy (Decanter): "Reserved on the nose at first, but unsurprisingly gives off a more broad, black, charred character than the entry Cabernet. Luscious on the palate, retracting into a ghostly, nuanced finish. Should come into its own after a few years and be a delicious, ageworthy Oakville Cabernet. Drinking Window: 2024-2037. (Oct 2020)"
