97 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Vine Hill Ranch Vineyard is glorious. Dark and expansive on the palate, the 2019 is just stunning right out of the gate. Plum, blackberry, sage, tobacco, leather, spice and incense all build over time. The Vine Hill Cabernet is not quite as sensual as the Pure Magic, but it more than makes up for that with its mysterious, beguiling personality. There is plenty of sheer allure, that much is obvious. Drink: 2026-2039.(Jan 2022)"
94-96 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "A barrel sample, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Vine Hill Ranch reveals a very deep, opaque purple color and vivacious, fruity scents of crushed blueberries, black raspberries, warm plums and cassis plus nuances of menthol, dark chocolate and pencil lead. Full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating, ripe black fruits with minty sparks and a firm, grainy texture, finishing long and with lovely purity. (Mar 2021)"
