93 points Wine Spectator: "Firm in texture, this is generous with its dark berry, black cherry, dried orange peel and tea flavors, coming together gracefully as the finish narrows in focus and lingers. Best from 2018 through 2024. 228 cases made."

2012 vintage notes

Amazing concentration and richness! The nose opens with black cherry and floral notes before the supple black fruit hits your palate, coating it with suave and velvety cassis, licorice, purple flowers, mocha, and dried herbs. The more "classic Cab" of the two Cabs (DuBrul being the other), it gushes right out of the bottle and also shows excellent aging potential. I highly recommend it for any fan of Cabernet. Made from a special block of old vines in Red Willow Vineyard, planted in 1973. - Marcus

2011 vintage notes

Owen Roe 1973 Block Red Willow Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is outstanding, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon expressed in a classic, structured form. The 2011 shows the redder side of Cabernet, with base notes of ripe blackberries and accents of cedar, graphite, and sage. I recommend cellaring 3-4 years before diving into the first bottle. - Marcus

2010 vintage notes

Sumptuous and silky textured, structured layers of blackberry and cassis explode in the mouth. Black licorice, bittersweet cocoa, dried flowers, and a hint of eucalyptus adding depth and weight. A 30+ second finish of red plum and cherry, blackberry jam, and smoke adds to its power and breadth. A gorgeous wine, though a bit tightly wound, decant if drinking now. We suggest cellaring for 2-3 years before drinking, and holding for up to 15.
