Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"Tasted with winemaker Jean Hoefliger. The palate is plush and silken with alluring notes of capsicum and sagebrush. Full, round and layered, with granular tannins dusty to the point of seeming almost chalky. The finish is long and spicy with delicate tobacco and cured meat nuances." - Jonathan Cristaldi (Jun 2022)

94 Points - The Wibne Independent:
"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford delivers expressive notions of blackberry preserves, Morello cherries, and warm cassis, leading to hints of bay leaves, cedar chest, and graphite. The medium to full-bodied palate is energetic and refreshing, with firm, velvety tannins and lovely tension, finishing long with a minty lift." - LPB (Apr 2023)

92 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tonella Vineyard is laced with dark red plum, cedar, scorched earth, tobacco, dried herbs and chocolate. Expressive savory and spice notes are laced throughout, adding aromatic nuance and persistence Give this firm, powerful Rutherford Cabernet a few years in bottle to come together." - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2022)

90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:

"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford offers outstanding notes of earthy black fruits, tobacco, leather, and sweet spices in a rounded, mouth-filling, incredibly satisfying and charming style. Drink it over the coming 10-12 years." (May 2022)
