Raymond Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
92 Points WA
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve comes from a mix of sites, ranging from Yountville in the south to Calistoga in the north, as well as some mountain vineyards, such as Atlas Peak. A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, it has a dense purple color and a beautiful nose of blue and black fruit, licorice, graphite and subtle toast. It spent 18 months in 100% new French oak and was bottled unfiltered. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for another two decades or more.
Heartland Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek 2012
93 points JH
Matured in both French and American oak. Stand out release under this label and excellent value. Essence-like blackcurrant and dried herb notes with a lift of mint. Fruit does the overwhelming majority of the talking. Freshness, flavour and texture all impress.
Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
93 JS / 90 WA
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Faust is designed as a second wine so that only the top lots end up in the Quintessa. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, sweet crème de cassis fruit, chocolate, licorice and underbrush characteristics in a delicious, fruit-forward, open-knit style. Enjoy it over the next decade or more.
Tommasi Poggio al Tufo Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
91 points WS
Fragrant, with intense aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry and licorice, augmented by spice. Supple and balanced, delivering vibrant acidity and well-integrated tannins on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2023.
