James Suckling 95
"Fresh cassis and blueberries with crushed violets and stones, too. This is fresh and complex. The palate carries a smooth, supple and tautly refined brand of tannin and a succulently fresh core of blue plums and blueberries. Drink or hold."
Jeb Dunnuck 93
"Cut from the same cloth, yet with a touch of rusticity in its tannins, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five offers a full-bodied, rounded, structured style as well as loads of sweet red and black fruits, toasted spice, and herbed de Provence like notes. Its a powerful, concentrated wine, has loads of fruit, and is going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91
"Made up of 90 Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 Petit Verdot, 3 Malbec and 2 Merlot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is deep garnet-purple colored with pronounced crme de cassis, blackberry pie and black forest cake notes with waft of bay leaves, cigar box, tar and smoked meats. The palate is full-bodied, firm and chewy with a taut, muscular mid-palate and an herb-lifted finish."
