Critical Acclaim

WA 95

Wine Advocate

"The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville was matured for 22 months in 80% new French oak. "If we had picked this post-Glass Fire, we would have lost it," winemaker Jesse Katz says with audible relief, recalling the devastating wildfire that began on September 27th in Napa County. "The fire was right there, and it went right through the vineyard." This lucky-to-be-here Cabernet has a medium to deep ruby color and gregarious aromas of cassis, coffee beans, sage, tobacco leaves and crème brûlée, offering surprising aromatic purity and layering for this challenging vintage. The full-bodied palate is über ripe and hedonistic, with loads of suede-textured tannins, rounded acidity and a long, oak-laced finish. A hint of rusticity and overt oak character suggests this will be most enjoyable over the next 5-7 years. 325 cases were made. Drink 2024-2034"

Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville pours an inky black and has aromas of pencil shavings, mocha, cedar, and plum preserve. Full-bodied, with good plushness of fruit, it has a velvety texture upfront though turns a bit gripping on the finish, likely due to the vintage. It’s a well-made wine, though, with a lot to love, with inky fruit, good depth, a clean finish that’s plush with espresso and warming spice. Drink it over the next 15 years."
