100 POINTS, Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate. "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Spottswoode explodes from the glass with bombastic notes of crushed blackcurrants, fresh blackberries and wild blueberries with hints of cardamom, lilacs, incense and fragrant earth, leading into wafts of pencil shavings and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, elegant and yet so, so intense, it has layers of bright crunchy fruit and mineral sparks galore, framed by exquisitely ripe, finely pixelated tannins, finishing very long and energetic. Wowsers."
100 POINTS, Jeb Dunnuck. "One of the wines of the vintage, as well as a legendary Napa Cabernet that will compete with anything out there, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals a deep purple hue as well as extraordinary notes of pure crème de cassis and blackberry-scented fruits intermixed with tobacco leaf, lead pencil, spice, and hints of flowers. It hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a layered, seamless texture, and a blockbuster of a finish. This is a wine you don’t want to miss!"
