‘Flirting with triple digits, the 2021 Series C is constructed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Still incredibly tight yet exuding that special “it” factor, the red blend is layered with gorgeous dark red and succulent black fruit tones with gobs of attractive oak essences that sway with power and finesse. If you're a cult California Cabernet collector, you'll want to add this to your cellar as fast as possible. Just under 20,000 bottles rested for about two years in French oak barrels, 81% new. It's utterly profound. 2026-2050’ – Anthony Mueller, Wine Advocate, 99/100

‘57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 7% Cabernet Franc. Matured for 22 months in barrel, 81% new. Black berries plus hints of violets, herbs, vanilla and spice. Great fruit definition, bright acidity. A wine of structure and poise – succulent on entry, properly dry on the finish.’ – Christian Eedes,, 96/100

‘Truly stellar. Ample rains followed an unusually cold and wet spring which continued into early summer, leading to larger vine canopies and requiring additional inputs to manage vigorous growth. Flowering was largely even, with good fruit-set, boding well for an abundant crop. Early growing season temperatures were cool to moderate, warming gradually toward ripening. Noteworthy was the lack of heatwaves normally experienced in February and March. This meant that water resources were less strained and bunches saw little to no sunburn. We were excited by flavours while tasting for harvest decision-making. Berries were supple-skinned, bursting with flavour, vibrant freshness and a bold tannin structure. Harvest began on February 11th ,only 3 days later than usual, and we were blessed with mild weather for the remainder of the season. Wines of the vintage are intensely coloured and show a sophisticated poise and gravitas.’ – Winemaker
