94 Points Jeb Dunnuck - Red and blackcurrants, gravelly earth, tobacco, and assorted spice notes all emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard, and this rich, powerful 2017 has medium to full body, rich, chewy, substantial tannins, good overall balance, and a great finish. It shows more purity and elegance with time in the glass, yet it's still going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and should have an easy two decades of overall longevity.

93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard was aged for 20 months in French oak, 58% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes prancing out of the glass with gregarious crème de cassis, camphor, wild blueberries and black raspberries notes, plus suggestions of pencil shavings and wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with lively, expressive blue and black fruit flavors, framed by ripe, fine-grained tannins, finishing long and layered. 600 cases were made.

93 Points Vinous - The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard captures so much of what makes the best wines in this vintage appealing. It is vibrant and savory, as all these wines are, but it also has terrific body and resonance to give a sense of measure. Blackberry jam, chocolate, spice, menthol and licorice fill out the layers nicely as this ample Cabernet shows off its resonance.

Winemaker Notes - Sourced from one of our highest elevation vineyards, the 2017 Rockfall Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon features a true wildness that expresses the rugged growing site 2,000ft above the fog line. Elegant aromas of blueberries, cassis, graphite and black tea with complex undercurrents of baking spices. This wine balances power with elegance through to its savory palate with a generous structure and ample tannins. The structure of this wine allows for many years of cellar aging to continue to bring out nuanced flavors and complexity.
