95 points Wine Spectator Insider: "Impressive for its richness and deep structure, this red screams Red Mountain, offering compelling blackberry, crushed rock and espresso tones that build tension toward firm tannins. Best from 2022 through 2031."

I found none of the "reserved" character Jeb referred to, so it seems this gorgeous Cabernet is settling in to itself beautifully. There are fine tannins here, sure, but they're expertly woven into the sumptuously black-fruited fabric of the wine. Winemaker Todd Alexander cut his teeth making Cabernet for Bryant Family in Napa; his expertise is on full display here and I have no quarrel with drinking this now nor with suggesting it will age for 30 years. Both work. -Marcus

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "More tight, backward, and reserved, yet certainly loaded with potential, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain Estate (95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot) reveals a saturated purple hue as well as powerful notes of blackberries, cassis, graphite, espresso roast, and crushed rocks. It’s beast of a wine and not for those looking for instant gratification, but it’s going to keep for 30 years or more."
