Natalie's Score: 90/100
The horses on the label are a tribute to the wild horses that once roamed the Hose Heaven Hills wine region. They were approximately 14 hands tall: small but sturdy and strong, known for their unbridled strength and freedom. Aromas of coffee, mocha and spice as well as fleshy blackberry. The wine is aged in American oak barrels for 14 months and that that provide a succulently rich/sweet frame and carry the tannins to an excellent place of balance. The wine is very approachable. Pair with a rare steak.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb, turkey.

|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This juicy fruit forward Cabernet spent 14 months in American oak. The result is silky, opulent tannins, slightly herbaceous, spice and lots of blackberry and black cherry fruit. A very well balanced wine with a long fruit finish. A great bbq wine with burgers or steak! Tasted June 2016
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A rich and opulent Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2014 vintage. Deeply concentrated red fruit with velvety medium tannins, medium acidity, medium plus body. Declared 13.5% ABV. Integrating alcohol. Mocha, cacao, red and black berry with a hint of mint. Drinking well on it's own and ready to pair with gourmet BBQ burgers or grilled pork tenderloin. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 90/100.

|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This juicy cabernet sauvignon is made with grapes from a vineyard located in the foothills of the southern part of the Columbia Valley giving it a surprisingly low sugar amount of 3-4 grams. It was then aged 14 months in oak. Aromas of cherry and light spice with flavours of dark berries and oak. It would pair nicely with roast leg of lamb.
|Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of dark fruit and tobacco with a hint of smoke on the nose. The flavours of dark cherry and plum. Well balanced tannins and long finish. Would pair well strong cheeses, braised meats.
