92 points, Robert M. Parker Jr., Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 14
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Hawkeye is a well-built, structured, deep and potentially complex wine that has plenty of upside. Dense ruby/purple, full-bodied, very young and backward, this wine does offer impressive texture, depth and quality. Drink 2017-2030."
