97 points Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "Deep garnet-black in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley has an extraordinary perfume of cassis laced with an array of classic Cabernet scents: cured meats, pencil shavings, violet, lilac, bay leaves and exotic spices. The palate is pure and lifted, with ripe, dusty tannins and bursts of freshness that highlight its perfume and perfectly ripe fruits, finishing very long and very layered. 575 cases were made. Drink: 2021-2040 (Jun 2021)"

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is stunning stuff, offering up a dense purple color as well as both black and blue fruits, notes of lead pencil, crushed stone, graphite, and tobacco, full-bodied richness, ripe, velvety tannins, and a great finish. This powerful, sexy, seamless Cabernet will keep for two decades or more. Drink: 2021-2042. (Jul 2021)"

94 points James Suckling: "A perfumed nose of blackberries, black cherries, lavender, bark, peppermint, vanilla, chocolate and sweet spices. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Balanced, vivid and bright with a velvety texture. Elegant and delicious cabernet. Drink from 2023. (Oct 2021)"
