95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from the Tench Vineyard in Oakville, the deep purple-hued 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a rocking bouquet of sweet black fruits interwoven with lots of chocolate, iron, black olives and an almost marine-like nuance that always seems to be present in wines from this vineyard. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and textured, it has silky tannins and is a straight-up brilliant Cabernet. Drink it over the coming 15-20 years. Drink: 2020-2035. (1/31/20)"

Producer notes: "Coming exclusively from the Tench Vineyard in Oakville. A stone’s throw from Screaming Eagle, RUDD Estate, and Bond’s St. Eden Vineyard along the Oakville Cross Road at the juncture of the Silverado Trail. The characteristic Oakville stamp is at the center of this wine, lush black fruit (blackberry and cherry), violets, herbs and sweet tobacco leaves that lean toward a purple and black opulence. There is a wonderful minerality present with hints of cedar that is characteristic of clone 7 wines. It is in the finish where the wine really shines with firm muscle and structure, allowing this wine to age gracefully for many years to come. Drink now or cellar for 8-15 years. Aged in 80% new French oak barrels for 20 months."
