"Inky purple. On the nose, a highly fragrant bouquet of black and blue fruit liqueur, fresh flowers, spicecake and musky herbs. Very fresh and alluringly sweet on the palate, offering powerful dark berry and cherry-vanilla flavors and a sexy floral pastille quality gaining strength with air. Juicy, broad and penetrating on the finish, with echoing notes of blue fruit and vanilla. (92-94 points)"

"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal Vineyard seems to have handled the challenges of the vintage brilliantly. All of the vineyard signatures come through beautifully. Incense, smoke, tobacco, wild flowers and black fruit meld together in an effortless, gracious Cabernet Sauvignon. Once again, David Ramey used a fairly high amount of Petit Verdot (24%) in the blend."

"Marked by a dose of charry, smoky oak, this offers dense flavors of dark berry, currant, black licorice and dried herb. Ends with gutsy tannins and a persistent finish."
