Reviews
• Decanter: 88 DWWA20
• Vinous / Antonio Galloni: 92 The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is very nicely done. Medium in body and silky with fine balance, the 2017 offers plenty of near- and medium-term appeal. Sweet red cherry, raspberry, cedar, spice and floral notes all open up in the glass. This is a fairly delicate style for the year but it all works well.
• Wine & Spirits: 89 Weston Eidson, a Texan making wine in Napa Valley, blends this cabernet from three vineyards, one on the east side of Rutherford, one in the hills above Calistoga and a third in western Yountville. It’s rich, with lovely gentleness; the only thing that gives a clue to the affordable price is the grape-must simplicity of the flavor. Decant it for roast lamb.
