"More limited in production are the two high-end Cabernet Sauvignons. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Celestial (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a stunner. World-class notes of blackberry, blackcurrants, graphite, licorice, and even a hint of unsmoked cigar tobacco are followed by a full-bodied, rich, super-concentrated wine with low acidity, ripe but significant tannin, and a finish of a good 45+ seconds. This wine should evolve for 20-25 years or more.

Winemaker Craig Becker is co-owner of this huge estate in the Vaca Mountain range along with Allan Chapman. I tasted through the 2012s and 2013s; as well as the 2014s, which look very fruit-forward, soft, round, juicy, and again, quite pure and impressive. This is an under-the-radar, high-quality producer that certainly deserves more attention." (WA)

"A dense and fruity red with a slightly warm palate from the ripeness, but this finishes with texture and style. Drink in 2018." (JS)
