Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Fudge, smoked blackberries and a shred of asphalt show on the nose of this bottling from the longtime Paso producer. The density is seriously thick but not overblown, with brighter cherry and fresh blueberry fruit elements that lean against a tannic edge, flecked with black pepper and espresso bean.

The intense dark ruby red color of the Cabernet Sauvignon is reflective of this full-bodied, flavorful wine. The core of black currant and hints of cedar and spice along with cocoa aromas echoed by rich persistent flavors of plush ripe fruit, dark chocolate and anise are all supported by balanced rich velvety tannins.
