Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep purple color!

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Knight Valley (Sonoma Sub-Region) has aromas of eucalyptus, bleuberry, blackberry, floral, chocolat and mint.

The tannins are grippy, that's a full bodied wine and the finish is long.

Pair it with roasted duck brest with mushroom sauce and brandy.

Serve it at 15-17 degrees.

Can be aged up to 8-11 years.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Bacberry, black cherry, plum, mushroom, graphite, and cedar aromas is a nice balance of fruit and barrel. The flavours are juice blck fruits and the tannin and acidity balnce it perfectly. An very nice red meat wine that also makes a perfect evening sipping wine.
Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Vanilla, clove, and sweet dark berries. Full bodied with noticeable tannins, dark berries, pepper, leading to a long pepper and vanilla finish. Pair with BBQ ribs.
Tasted August 2014. 89 points. Matt Steeves - @QuercusVino
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

August 17, 2014: Deep ruby/purple, currant, berry, green herb and mineral notes along with light oak toast/spice. Currant, cherry, medicinal note and mineral. Full bodied and grippy tannins with good acidity. This should improve with short term cellaring of a few years and drink for another 5 past that. Try with lamb stew or grilled beef.
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

If you are looking for an in-your-face fruit bomb, this is it! Big ripe fruit flavours with the boozy warming of this Californian Beauty.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Offer aromas of clove and a touch of bell pepper with blackberry, chocolate, vanilla and herb flavors.
