Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

Score: 90+ | June 14, 2019 |

Lastly, the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Private Reserve (aged 19 months in 68% new French oak) offers an outstanding bouquet of cedarwood, black fruits, currants, and earth. With medium to full body, ripe tannins, and good overall elegance, it’s approachable today yet will benefit from short term cellaring and cruise for 10-15 years.

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve has a pronounced nose of crème de cassis, warm black plums and mulberries with suggestions of cloves, violets and dried Mediterranean herbs plus a waft of pencil lead. Full-bodied and jam-packed with black fruit, herbs and spicy layers, it has a firm line of grainy tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

Score: 90 | November 15, 2017 | Wine Spectator

The strong cedary presence throughout adds structure, flavor and dimension, lending a lead pencil edge to the taut dark berry, currant and olive notes.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is scented of black currents, black plums, blueberries and cedar with a hint of sandalwood. Full-bodied in the mouth, it delivers tons of muscular fruit with a firm backbone of grainy tannins and good length. Still very youthful, it needs another 4 to 6 years to enter its drinking window.

Score: 90 | June 15, 2016 | Wine Spectator

A supple, charming style, with smooth tannins leading to a mix of gravel- and fresh earth-scented plum, blackberry, licorice and road tar notes. Ends with subtle flavor nuances of mocha and baking spices. Drink now through 2026.

Score: 89 | January 13, 2015 | Wine Advocate

Notes of red and blackcurrants, plums, background oak and earth emerge from this juicy, medium to full-bodied, well-made Cabernet. Consume it over the next 10-15 years.
