Reviews and Accolades
95 Points/Wine Enthusiast
A substantially bold, complex and layered wine, this is juicy in feel yet firm in structured tannins. Textured and intriguing in sweet oak tones, the fruit components are weighted in cassis and black cherry, with a lasting mineral-laden finish of crushed rock. Best from 2026–2031.
95 Points/Jeb Dunnuck
Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Transcendent sports a saturated purple color as well as a big, sexy profile. Black and blue fruits, some graphite and violets, full body, sweet tannins, and terrific purity all make for a rich, blockbuster styled effort that has the density and tannins to keep for 2+ decades. Barrel Sample: 93-95
92 Points/James Suckling
A firm and silky red with aromas and flavors of blackcurrants and blueberries. Hints of walnuts, too. Full-bodied, chewy and rich on the finish.
